I can't get over the fact that all the art attention in Japan is paid to Tokyo while Osaka is filled with talented people and fresh galleries. The money is spent to have great events and venues in the city but yet it is hardly noticed. Osaka is well over-looked and really shouldn't be. I learned many facts about art in Osaka since I met my friend, Duncan, who share similar thoughts as me. Except he took it in action and he is mapping all the galleries and events in Osaka. To add to that, he posts the local beers and restaurants he finds. Topping off all that goodness, he even started a free bi-monthly art guide of Osaka for foreigners in Japan. FLAG-which stands for Foreigner's Live Art Guide is the name of the guide. Pick one up or go check out his blog http://tsunagarid.blogspot.com/. See for yourself. Really beneficial to anyone who wants to what's going on in the city of Osaka. Contents are both in English and Japanese! Stay up! Don't sleep on Osaka!
