Show Notes

Whenever people think about living in Japan, the first city that comes to mind is Tokyo! Tokyo is the capital, has incredible architecture, and it’s a great, fast city to live in! But, just because it’s the one we’ve heard about the most doesn’t mean it’s the only place to seek out if you’re moving to Japan; Osaka is a great one too!

This week’s guest on the podcast was Richard, who moved to Osaka in his 50s and described it as the “Shanghai of Japan,” the city people don’t usually think about living in Osaka, but it happens to be one of the best places to live in Japan!

In this post, we’re going to be taking a closer look at what it’s like living in Osaka, so if you’re thinking about moving to Japan, you can figure out if Osaka fits the way you want to live your life too! 

Richard explained his idea of “home” very beautifully. “Home isn’t the soil you walked barefoot on the ground in, it’s the people you surround yourself with and the space you live in.” Because of the way Osaka is built and the way people are, he’s been able to find his “home” there. Could it be your next home too? Thinking about a move to Osaka? Want a guide for living in Osaka?
