Living and working in Osaka, Japan

Osaka is Japan’s 3rd largest city and has been the economic capital of the Kansai region for many centuries. Osaka is relaxed and is a great place to experience a large, modern Japanese city. When compared with Tokyo, Osaka is a much cheaper city and is well known for its great food and shopping. The city is full of friendly locals who are at ease with foreign visitors and expats alike. The population of Osaka is around 2.7 million.

Osaka is a large city, but because the subway and train systems are so good, it is very easy to get around. It is an excellent place to live and travel with children. As with the rest of Japan, crime rates are extremely low and the city is generally very safe. Kyoto is only 11 minutes away from Osaka by shinkansen (bullet train). 

The weather in Osaka is pleasant all year round, though there is some variety in temperature with four distinctive seasons. Summer (from late June to early September) is warm and humid. Winter (from early December to late March) is usually cold, but not freezing. Spring and Autumn are moderate and sunny. In late March / early April, the cherry blossom season is a beautiful sight to see.
