Life in Osaka

In the heart of the Kansai, Osaka is known as the “second city” of Japan. As any Japanese person will tell you, living in Osaka is very different from Tokyo. It’s often described as “gritty”, but Osaka is also a lot of fun and has arguably some of the best food in Japan. Some people even call it “Japan’s kitchen.” It even has its own dialect!

An hour’s ride from the ancient hearts of Japan – Kyoto and Nara – Osaka is a city where traditions meet modernity. As you might expect, transportation is excellent.

Osaka has excellent connections with the rest of the country by rail, with Tokyo two and a half hours away on the bullet train and Kyoto about 30 minutes. It also has a first-class international airport and a busy port, with ferries departing to various destinations all over Japan, and further afield.

Living in Japan as an expat offers a unique blend of safety and rich cultural experiences. Japan is renowned for its low crime rates, creating a safe environment that allows residents to explore the country with a sense of security.  The juxtaposition of modernity and tradition provides a fascinating backdrop for daily life, as expats navigate the efficient urban landscapes while cherishing the serenity of historic temples and tranquil gardens. Overall, Japan’s safety, coupled with its rich cultural tapestry, makes it an inviting and fulfilling destination for expatriates.
