Osaka, Japan: Spiritual Sanctum in Commercial City Sprawl
The Osaka district though recognised as the second smallest prefecture by size, holds a populous lot of up to 2.6 million making up 7% of the nation. Bustling past its electrifying state of current economic vibrancy and commerce, the city owes its culmination of culture, business, and arts to its central fixture West of Kobe and North of Sakai; forming a coastal cusp which formed the entryway for the welcoming of past dignitaries and explorers from China, Korea, and the Asian continent. The former Naniwazu Port saw excursions from foreign craftsmen and trade stalwarts during its operations in the 5th century, as well as the introduction and spread of Buddhism.
This seeping in of spiritual salience among Osaka’s kinsfolk spurred the sprouting of historical structures of worship and idolatry, with main exemplars including the Naniwanomiya Palace, considered to be the oldest palace in Japan, as well as Shitennoji Temple – built in 593 A.D by Prince Shotoku, marking a notch in the annals of his repertoire as unifier and advocate of Buddhism during the dogmatic rift between his Soga Clan and the conservative Shinto leanings of the Mononobe Clan. Now surrounded by the enveloping city expanse, the weathered beacon sits within a few minutes’ drive south from the Osaka Castle – an imposing display of legacy, with rebuilt walls, intricate gold leaf accents, and perching dolphin and tiger roof embellishments marking a lasting testament of perseverance and treasured heritage through the test of typhoons, wars, and the occasional strike of lightning.
Incorporated as a city in 1889, Osaka came into form as Japan’s largest city and the world’s sixth by the year 1925. Spurring forth from this scale of urban growth, the city tract of Osaka holds winding lines of subway routes, with the Osaka Loop Line circling central district haunts, while road travels come available through family-friendly car rentals providing motion through the stretch of the Hanshin Expressway, with designated city lots in Umeda and Namba offering handy parking convenience for further strolls within the city’s streets.
A glance into the buzzing street sights of Osaka yields travellers with a multitude of cuisine and leisure attractions immersed in ingrained appreciation for the varied native cultures and traditions. Quirky quests find cause in attractions such as the Konamon Museum – with exhibits and activities revolving around the making of Osaka staples of takoyaki octopus-filled snacks; or instead delve into the craft of making decorative plastic food samples at Morino Samples. Guests looking for actual edibles can venture further into local tachinomi standing bars serving deep-fried skewers, or kushi-katsu; in addition to local necessities of okonomi-yaki and yaki-soba, while sightseers eager to grasp the city’s vastness can find eagle-eye views overlooking the urban tract from the looming red Ferris wheel perched atop the Hankyu Entertainment Park in Umeda.
