Osaka is the world’s 3rd safest city, second largest metropolitan area in Japan and among the largest in the world with over 19 million inhabitants. Osaka has served as the capital of Japan for centuries, been a port of entry for international exchange. In more modern times, it has been a bastion of commerce and finance, and played a major role in Japan’s industrial and economic development. Osaka has a plethora of tourism resources to note a cityscape that has given it the name of a Aqua metropolis. Easily accessible from within Japan and abroad by multimodal transportation networks that feature Japan’s only 24-hour airport in the Kansai International Airport, Osaka welcomes around 210 million visitors every year for business, pleasure or what have you.
The Osaka-Umeda terminal is used by an average of around 2.5 million people each day. “Grand Front Osaka” was opened in April 2013 as a new “town” at the gateway to Osaka.It has the greatest number of manufacturing establishments in Japan with 18,229 companies. It is an area where the artisan spirit lives on, with more than 60% of industrial production in small and medium-sized enterprises that take the top share globally.

Osaka is known for its food, both in Japan and abroad. Author Michael Booth and food critic François Simon of Le Figaro have both suggested that Osaka is the food capital of the world.
