Osaka is a designated city in Honshu, Japan's Kansai region. It is the capital and most populous city of Osaka Prefecture, as well as Japan's third most populous city, after Tokyo and Yokohama (both in the Greater Tokyo Area and Kant region). It is also the major component of the Keihanshin Metropolitan Area, Japan's second-largest metropolitan area and the world's 10th largest urban area, with more than 19 million residents, according to the 2020 census.
It had grown into a significant regional port by the Kofun period (300–538), and it temporarily functioned as the imperial capital in the 7th and 8th centuries. During the Edo period (1603–1867), Osaka flourished and became regarded as a cultural centre in Japan. Osaka grew dramatically after the Meiji Restoration.
Osaka's population grew dramatically, and the city was rapidly industrialised. Osaka was formally founded as a municipality in 1889. Throughout the next decades, the construction boom drove population expansion, and by the 1900s, Osaka had established itself as the industrial capital of the Meiji and Taish eras. In the post-war period, Osaka made significant contributions to redevelopment, urban planning, and zoning standards, and the city grew quickly to become one of the key financial centres in the Keihanshin Metropolitan Area.
Osaka is a significant Japanese financial centre and one of the country's most multicultural and cosmopolitan cities. The Osaka Securities Exchange, as well as the headquarters of global electronics corporations including as Panasonic and Sharp, are located in the city. Osaka is home to numerous important universities, including Osaka University, Osaka Metropolitan University, and Kansai University, which make the city an international centre for research and development. Osaka Castle, Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, Dtonbori, Tstenkaku in Shinsekai, Tennji Park, Abeno Harukas, Sumiyoshi Taisha Grand Shrine, and Shitenn-ji, one of Japan's oldest Buddhist temples, are just a few of the city's famous attractions.
