Osaka is the largest city in Western Japan. Although Osaka is Japan's second smallest prefecture in area, it has the third largest population in Japan and boasts of having the second largest economy after Tokyo. A large number of global corporations such as Panasonic, Sharp, Daikin and Nissei are based in Osaka. Osaka also has many universities, technical schools and other educational institutions. Osaka has evolved independently and has long been an important political and economic centre. Osaka has an entertainment district with a history longer than that of Hollywood and Broadway. This area has many theaters where traditional arts such as Kabuki, Bunraku and Rakugo are performed. There are countless places to visit: the Tennoji/Abeno area with its large shopping malls, Tsutenkaku area for a taste of the old downtown, and the Bay Area for the world's largest aquarium and Universal Studios. Don’t miss the chance to try the local cuisine, such as takoyaki, okonomiyaki, and tecchiri.
