Osaka is Japan's third biggest city and second largest metropolitan area in Japan and serves a major economic hub. Osaka is a port city, and historically the merchant capital of Japan. The traditional greeting among citizens of this friendly, unpretentious "work hard, party hard”. Osaka has long identified itself by kuidaore "ruinous eating" and there are several Osaka-born dishes that you must try, starting with the okonomiyaki savory pancake, if you are to say you have experienced Osaka. October is one of the best months for weather in the whole year: sunny and warm days predominate, with cool evenings. It’s a very pleasant time to travel. At the very end of the month, the leaves start to change color.
The other main cities of the Kansai region: Kyoto, Nara and Kobe are all less than an hour by train from Osaka.
