Osaka is located in the Kansai region of Japan. It’s a large port city and commercial center that’s renowned for its bustling street culture, modern architecture, and food. The Yardbird team visited Osaka a few months ago during their trip to Hyogo. In addition to enjoying some takoyaki, they also visited a knife maker and calligraphy stall to witness some of the craftsmanship that this region of Japan is known for. Check out the photos below, shot by Fung, for a closer look at the sights and tastes of Osaka.
