Osaka

Osaka is the second largest city in Japan and the largest city in the Kansai area. It is one of Japan's major industrial centers and ports, and it has a long history as a trading port and commercial center. In addition, it is the home of such cultural traditions as bunraku (traditional puppet theater) and kabuki (traditional theater).

The city is most famous for its inhabitants and local cuisine. The people of Osaka are widely known for their outgoing spirit and friendliness and the local dialect has been adapted as the standard for stand-up comedians and actors. Osaka’s regional cuisine is thought to be the best in Japan. Dishes include okonomiyaki (a pancake-based dish containing vegetables, meat, and/or seafood), takoyaki (octopus dumplings) and udon (a noodle dish).
