I live in Kobe nearby, but I come into Osaka for two things: the food (like the cafes, restaurants, and especially the ramen) and the parties! Osaka has a lot of great things, but those are the two things get me to come visit all the time.
I chose to live in Kobe because it’s quieter and has less people. I prefer being away from crowds, and being in Osaka where there is a lot of people takes a lot of energyfor me, so it’s nice to go back to my quieter home city.
One of my recommended spots in Osaka is Orange Street over in Minami Horie! It’s super trendy and has really cute cafes and bakeries, so it’s really Insta-bae(Instagrammable!)
