The following text was written by my penpal Yoshi to introduce his hometown Osaka. He has given me permission to share this simple text for which I wish to thank him. Please enjoy this small mesage.
This is a simple translation that took a lot of liberties. The Japanese and English express the same ideas, but may express them a bit differently, please forgive these liberties.
My hometown is Osaka in Osaka prefecture. Osaka castle is nearby, a place of historical importance and so is downtown. I often go there to shop and sometimes I have a drink as well. There are many public facilities here such as hospitals and nature. I love this town.
