Osaka is the second largest metropolitan area in Japan and serves a major economic hub. Historically a merchant city, Osaka has also been known as the “Nation’s Kitchen”. Witha population of 2.5 million, Osaka is Japan’s third largest and second most important city. It hasbeen the economic powerhouse of the Kansai region for many centuries. The city’s west side hasthe main port as well as a tourist destination with attractions such as Kyocera Dome, UniversalStudios Japan, Osaka aquarium, Minami, Osaka castle, Umeda sky building and the TempozanHarbour Village. Osaka is known for its food, both in Japan and abroad. Author Michael Boothand food critic François Simon of Le Figaro have both suggested that Osaka is the food capitalof the world. Osaka’s culinary prevalence is the result of a location that has provided access tohigh quality ingredients, a high population of merchants, and close proximity to the ocean andwaterway trade. In recent years, Osaka has started to garner more attention from foreigners with the increased popularity of cooking and dining in popular culture. The National Museum of Art(NMAO) is a subterranean Japanese and international art museum, housing mainly collectionsfrom the post-war era and regularly welcoming temporary exhibitions.
