天王寺駅 (Tenou Temple Station) Underground Mall
For lunch, I decided to go back to the underground mall that I passed the day before. It had been a gloomy morning and I was worried that it might start raining again. The underground mall is located under the large intersection on the corner of the block with the zoo. There are various exits that lead to all corners of intersection. One of coolest things in it is the giant flower clock next to the stairs down to the railway. I forgot to take a picture of it. Google maps has a picture of the flower clock and the intersection that this mall is under. It can be found here.
Later on in the day I started wandering around to find a restaurant. And I came upon the north entrance of 通天閣 (Tsutenkaku). The previous day, I had passed through a small portion on the south side but since it was early in the day all the shops were closed. Most shops and restaurants open at around 11:00 AM for lunch. Depending on the place they will close any time from 8:00 PM to 3:00 AM.
