• Cuisine

    Osaka is the heart of Kansai (which also includes Kyoto, Kobe, Wakayama, and Nara). It was Osaka's enduring culture that created dashi broth and Kappo cuisine, staples of Japanese cooking. Both Kappo cuisine and dashi broth were developed over time using artisanal techniques. Osaka's unique food culture is filled with beautiful, delicious dishes that are feasts for the eyes as well as the stomach!
