I wrote this post "Different between Tokyo and Osaka" long long time ago when I started this blog in 2004. And I mention about Osaka Obachan. I can tell they are different Japanese from us. Today I found funny post about new groupe "Obachaaan" consisting of 47 obachan (middle-aged women) from Osaka, the group’s stated goal is to “use the power of Osaka obachan to enliven the world.”"Osaka Obachan are here to rock your world, make sure you don’t go hungry". Here is the promotion video of them.
Do you think the video is terribly exaggerated? No, Osaka Obachan are like that actually. Here is the list of their character we think.
They like leopard print.
They like big sale and free.
They ask "How much it was?" to others.
They are proud that they got something cheaper and cheaper.
They reply "hai hai hai" to every machine's notice sound "pi-"
They recommend and put foods they like into other's shopping basket without asking, even they don't know her/him.
They say "I tell this only to you", but they tell it everybody.
They never miss to have candies "ame-chan"in their bag.
