Hi There
If you go to Osaka, I suppose most people will love there, people are friendly, their talking way is relax, food is cheap, Osaka is powerful. But when I read this type article, when they try to say Osaka is better than Tokyo, I couldn't understand why they care so image.


haha, in defence of osaka, i love the city! so much good and cheap food! and the people are so helpful and cheerful at that! i have lots of really nice osaka memories... =)


FYI Dan Aykroyd and Gilda Radner got their start in the Toronto Second City troupe, they are not from Chicago.


"The urban equivalent of the Elephant Man." Nice!

That is funny that some guidebook introduces Osaka as 'the Yakuza city'. Many Japanese people still think of Al Capone and the St. Valentine's Day Massacre when they think of Chicago, sister city to Osaka. And there are quite a few famous comedians that got their start in Chicago: John Belushi, Dan Ackroyd, Gilda Radner, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Bill Murray. So, I guess there are a couple of things in common there...
