S.O.G. (save our gyoza)



In the Umeda district of Osaka, in the shadow of the Hep Five shopping centre, you'll find Gyoza Stadium. It is, as the name suggests, full of gyoza. However, unlike most stadiums, this one has no one in it.

If you like gyoza and you find yourself in Osaka, consider dropping by - as it may not be there much longer....


The 'sutadiam' needs paying customers, and soon.

There's plenty of tasty gyoza knocking about....



....at reasonable prices....



....and lots of choice....







....but no punters.....



Even those who like to eat gyoza while playing table tennis were absent....


Gyoza-eating table tennis players are more than welcome.

Gyoza Stadium is a perfectly pleasant place with many small gyoza shops laid out on one floor in a manner that causes you to have to walk about a bit, but this is no real hardship (if you like gyoza)....








Here, a member of staff pretends to be busy....



Do you have a baby, or are you very small? If yes, they have chairs especially for you, so there's really no excuse not to go....


Small chairs.

Just as I went to vacate the stadium, I spotted something in the corner, something much needed....


...or just a member of staff?

wow EMIO what do you think has led to the humble gyoza being so unfashionable?
How is the ice cream stadium faring?

Gyoza without table tennis is like bread without butter in my opinion.

Nah, that doesn't look all that good.
If you want awesome Gyoza, you need to visit Sendai. Near Sanjoumachi there is a gyoza special store called Za Gyoza, za best of za best. Last time I was there(5 years ago) they had the most delicious home made gyoza I ever tasted.
