Osaka, “City of Merchants”, is Western Japan’s largest city, and has flourished from antiquity as a commercial city.
It is also called the “nation’s kitchen”, featuring numerous restaurants and dining establishments aimed for its citizens, who have a particularly discriminating palate.
Osaka’s main characteristic is overflowing attention to service. The region’s character has long been one of deriving enjoyment from entertaining people, producing many comedians, and a comedy culture that pulls Japan forward.
