Osaka is a Japanese big city, the third biggest after Tokyo and Yokohama. (For a long time Osaka used to be the second biggest.) Osaka locates mouth of the rivers that go through Kyoto, the old capital of Japan locating inland, thus Osaka became important trade, merchant, industrial city.
Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe are close each other and they consist hubs in Kansai region. They have distinctive dialect slightly differ from standard Japanese but that is cherished in Japan.
Osaka is also famous with various inexpensive foods and comedies.
I go to Osaka today and watch a comedy show and afterward eat there.
