Description

An amended version of a presentation I gave for the 30th Anniversary of the Melbourne-Osaka Sister City Relationship.

Living and Working in Japan: Tales from an Australian Doing Business in Osaka Fred Taylor – Trade Development Officer, JETRO Sydney

From here, Osaka looks like any other Japanese city.

Osaka is different!

Osaka is proud of being different. This is best seen in Osaka’s culture, sporting rivalry with Tokyo, and Osakans themselves.

Culture Osaka is one of the few cities in the world where a giant crab on a building would be considered commonplace.

Sporting Rivalry Osakans are sports fanatics. The Hanshin Tigers, Osaka’s favourite baseball team, are also bitter rivals with Tokyo’s Yomiuri Giants.
