For a brief moment in time, twice actually, Osaka was the capital of Japan. With over a thousand years to loosen its belt and forget the importance of being the capital, Osaka has transformed. You could say it has moved on, grown, developed, matured and even regressed. While Osaka does not attract tourists like its culturally disciplined neighbour; Kyoto with its temples, kimono clad beauties and elegance, Osaka grabs you with the smell of great food, playful people and backstreets that still hold the secrets of the past.
