Home of the instant noodle, karaoke and even the ATM, it is said that if a product sells in Osaka, it will sell in Japan. Osaka is a great city to do business in, though a little expensive. Corruption is at a minimum. Business is viewed by most Japanese as a noble endeavor, and doing business is tightly intertwined with Japan’s culture and identity. Business travelers will find everything they require in Osaka, including world-class conference and convention centers, business hotels and a range of advanced technology. If it is new, exciting and runs on batteries, you will see it first in Osaka.
