Osaka Map

Down below you can choose a good Osaka map to help you prepare for your travels.

Osaka is technically the third most populous city in Japan after Tokyo and Yokohoma. But since Yokohama is part of metro Tokyo, Osaka is normally considered to be the second largest city in Japan. Osaka city has a resident population of 2.6 million, while Osaka prefecture (similar to a province) has 8.86 million. And the urban Keihanshin belt of the Kansai region, consisting of Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe, and the belt of suburbs connecting them, has a population of 18 million people.

The first map is a map of the Osaka region, which is called interchangably "Kansai" or "Kinki". This region includes not only Osaka but other major cities such as Kobe and Kyoto, and other smaller but important towns like Nara and Wakayama.
