New Discovery in Japan - OSAKA in KINKI / KANSAI Region

June 23, 2015


Osaka has a strong message in promoting its own culture and origin, compared to other prefectures in Japan. Osaka is the 2nd largest city after Tokyo in Japan, thus, it is a big commerical and business place in KINKI / KANSAI region.



Osaka has a variety of local food & eatery cultures since long time ago.  Osaka was originally developed as a merchant place, hence, it seems that local foods are basically served to customers in a very casual & quick manner as well as at a very reasonable price.



There are quite a number of famous local food places in Osaka city, where you like to find good foods.  Osaka tends to have many small & narrow shopping & food store lanes everywhere.  For an instance, 


- Shin-Sekai / Tsutenkaku,


- Jan-Jan Yokocho,


- Doton Bori Umeda Shopping Street


- Tenjin-Bashi Shopping Street


- Shinsai-Bashi Shopping Street


- Sen-Nichi-Mae Shopping Street




When you plan to visit KINKI / KANSAI region, you must stay in Osaka, try to walk around to pick up and eat nice local foods in one day.
