About Osaka

Osaka Facts
With a population of 2.5 million, Osaka is Japan's third largest and second most important city. It has been the economic powerhouse of the Kansai region for many centuries

Osaka Information
Like many metropolitan areas on the Honshu Island, Osaka was virtually leveled by US bombing during World War II. This devastation resulted in makeshift concrete facades, which continue to dominate Osaka's skyline. Despite its lackluster appearance however, Osaka is home to a number of historical and entertainment venues including Osaka Castle, Osaka Aquarium (the largest in Japan!), and Universal Studios Japan.

Osaka Culture
Osaka has been an important stop for marine transport since ancient times. Because it has been an economic and cultural center for so long, many historical and cultural relics can be found in the area.

Osaka Background
If Tokyo is Japan's capital, Osaka might be called its anti-capital. Osaka is the main metropolis of the Kansai region, and its inhabitants exhibit a strong rivalry towards the Kanto region, from baseball, food, popular culture, even to which side they ride escalators (on the left in Tokyo, but on the right in Osaka).
