#Osaka (#大阪市 Ōsaka-shi) is a designated city in the #Kansai region of #Japan . It is the capital city of Osaka #Prefecture and the largest component of the #Keihanshin Metropolitan Area, the second largest metropolitan area in Japan and among the largest in the world with over 19 million inhabitants. Situated at the mouth of the #YodoRiver on #OsakaBay , Osaka is the second largest city in Japan by daytime population after Tokyo's 23 wards and the third largest city by nighttime population after Tokyo's 23 wards and Yokohama, serving as a major economic hub for the country.
Historically a merchant city, Osaka has also been known as the "nation's kitchen" (天下の台所 tenka no daidokoro) and served as a center for the rice trade during the #Edo period.
Osaka was long considered Japan's primary economic center, with a large percentage of the population belonging to the merchant class. Over the course of the #Edoperiod (1603–1867), Osaka grew into one of Japan's major cities and returned to its ancient role as a lively and important #port . Its popular #culture was closely related to ukiyo-e depictions of life in Edo. By 1780, Osaka had cultivated a vibrant arts culture, as typified by its famous #Kabuki and #Bunraku#theaters . In 1837, Ōshio Heihachirō, a low-ranking #samurai , led a peasant insurrection in response to the city's unwillingness to support the many poor and suffering families in the area. Approximately one-quarter of the city was razed before shogunal officials put down the rebellion, after which Ōshio killed himself. Osaka was opened to foreign trade by the government of the sBakufu at the same time as #Hyōgo (modern Kobe) on 1 January 1868, just before the advent of the #BoshinWar and the sMeiji Restoration. "Osaka" literally means "large hill" or "large slope". It is unclear when this name gained prominence over #Naniwa , but the oldest written evidence for the name dates back to 1496.
Tonight I went to one of the local temples together with a lot of other people. It’s a tradition to pray to Ebisu San these days, who’s the god of business, prosperity and money. I btw found out that my 2018 will be very lucky and successful. #ebisu#temple#festival#god#osaka#japan#namba#naniwa
