Ukiyo's Osaka!! 大阪

Osaka is Japan's 2nd city and historically Japan's #1 business and economic center. Osaka is the main city in the area I am from . Osaka is also home to alot of japanese food and the kansai area in general is known as the "nation's kitchen".

The Osaka metro area has a GDP of $671 billion in 2009 which is slightly behind London and the 6th largest in the world.

Nice waterfalls and I like metallic and glassy buildings, I like this picture thread much more than the previous ones.

by looking at the pictures I feel that Osaka is more business/industrial city than Tokyo. Is this true?
