Japan’s second Largest city, with its own distinct popular culture

With a population of over 8.8 million in greater Osaka area, Osaka is the second largest city in Japan. Nearby Kansai Airport has direct flights to many world cities, and Osaka is extremely accessible from anywhere in Japan. It is located at the center of the nation and bullet trains connect it to most cities within two hours. During the Edo period (1603 - 1868), Osaka flourished as the nation’s economic center and developed its own unique urban culture. This was the birthplace of “Bunraku”, Japanese puppet shows, “rakugo”, a popular traditional form of humorous storytelling, and of “Manzai”, Japanese style stand-up comedy. Osaka is very near to Kyoto and Nara, the old capitals with their world-renowned temples and monuments, and conventions can be planned integrating these cities. It is also easy to arrange half-day or one-day tours to World Heritage sites such as Himeji Castle and the ancient pilgrimage routes of Kumano Kodo.
