Mayor of Osaka
Hirofumi Yoshimura

With a long history of 1500 years, Osaka is the largest city in west Japan.
Once a capital city and gateway to international exchange, Osaka became a prosperous center of commerce and finance in modern times and played a major role in the industrial and economic development of Japan.

With its ever growing market and extensive urban infrastructure, Osaka is a city full of business potential. The Kansai metropolitan region centering on Osaka has a population of approximately 21 million people and boasts a massive market with a Gross Regional Product (GRP) of 788.7 billion dollars (2013). Against this backdrop, many corporations are actively engaged in business activities, and numerous universities and research institutes are conducting high-level research and academic studies. Another advantage Osaka offers is a business environment where companies, commercial facilities and related institutions engaged in a wide range of fields covering the environment, energy, health, medicine, communications and more are all conveniently located in close proximity.
What's more, Osaka possesses a rich array of tourism resources from its cityscape, which symbolizes the "Aqua Metropolis", to historical sites and cultural properties that transmit its traditions and history. Added to this are a diverse food culture and various international entertainment facilities. Thanks to its exceptional transportation network, including Kansai International Airport with its round-the-clock operations, Osaka enjoys over 7 million foreign visitors (2015) annually.

In striving to create a city abounding in new business opportunities and home to a collection of professional talent, capital, and information, Osaka is actively engaged in setting up a global business environment by supporting innovation through new ideas and technology and realizing a dramatic easing of regulations through its special zones system in order to provide its full support to all companies engaged in business here.
We are sincerely looking forward to your investment in Osaka.
