Embark on a New Life in Osaka

Osaka's colorful city of over 8 million inhabitants is fast-paced, loud, and neon-lit; while some expats will be turned off by the activity others will find it exciting, vibrant and full of energy. The city is a major shopping hub with a number of different districts, including the luxurious goods found in Shinsaibashi and the more youthful and fashionable American Village. New arrivals will particularly want to head for the culture, restaurants, and famous sights of the Namba district. A thriving performing arts and theater scene is open to culture lovers, with traditional Bunraku puppet plays, classical music, ballet opera, musicals and plays. You'll also find sports teams, museums, and amusement parks to guarantee a busy life in Osaka that can never be boring. Services, industrial manufacturing, and retail are the three biggest industries of Osaka's income but the city has opportunities across a range of sectors. Electronics, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, food, construction, biotechnology, and telecommunications are all well-represented. Expats who speak Japanese may find opportunities for career advancement, and of course those who secure employment with a multinational corporation before arrival will have a major advantage.
