A Message from Hiroko, CEO of Osakan Space

オオサカンスペース 大崎弘子

A lot of non-Japanese individuals from all over the world have come and joined Osakan Space. Members are warm and friendly, regardless of whether they are good at English or not. I strongly encourage you to become friends with other members, even if they are working outside of your profession.

Osakan Space 代表取締役 大崎弘子からのメッセージ
世界各国からたくさんの人々がOskan Space のメンバーになりました。英語が話せる・話せないにもかかわらず、メンバーのみなさんは温かく、フレンドリーです。自分と同じ職業の方はもちろん、全く異なる職業をしていらっしゃる方など、たくさんのメンバーさんとお友達になる事をお勧めします。

I believe Osakan space is a modern day necessity. I am happy to have created a space that allows people to   come together and inspire each other to think more creatively.

I’ve recently spent 3 months in Osaka, travelling and working. What may have been a distant, tourist experience became much more intimate and inspiring. My secret? A coworking space named Osakan Space.

私はここ三ヶ月間大阪に滞在し、旅行をかねて仕事をしていました。遠隔でツーリストのような経験を予期していましたが、私の滞在を大いに充実させ、親密な経験にしたものがありました。それは、Osakan Space というコーワーキングスペースです。

Started by local entrepreneur Ms. Osaki (Osaki-san), it is a casual coworking space, housing more than 100 members. It offers a number of equipment and amenities including high-speed WiFi, 3D printers, couches, quiet spaces, staff assistance, even their very own Google Glass. While most members are in the tech industry, it is not exclusive. Photographers, researchers, even mangakas are found in Osakan Space, providing a diverse and creative atmosphere. There is even a resident ninja!

起業家の大崎さんによって始められたOsakan Space は、100人ほどをメンバーとするカジュアルなコーワーキングスペース。ハイスピードWiFi、3Dプリンター、ソファー、静かな環境、スタッフのアシスタンス、そしてOsakan Space 独自のGoogle グラスなどの機械や設備を備えています。ほとんどのメンバーさんがテクノロジー業界で働いていますが、専属的なスペースという訳ではありません。フォトグラファーや研究家、そして漫画家までもが集まるOsakan Space は、多様性のある、クリエイティブな空間です。忍者だって居留しているんですよ!

An Osaka native, Osaki-san has dedicated herself to promote local startups and businesses. Beyond a coworking space, Osakan Space also housed local startup events, including Startup Weekend and Shoot from Osaka(n). She took great efforts to foster a culture beyond mere acquaintanceship. Besides sharing work spaces, most members often spend lunch and off-work hours together. I was invited to events including table tennis meets, takoyaki parties, oden and nabe dinners. Along with daily self-introductions and status updates, we celebrated each others’ successes and supported each others’ challenges.

大阪のネイティブである大崎さんは、地元の起業やビジネスを助ける役割を果たして来ました。Osakan Space 以外にも、Startup Weekend や Shoot という地域の起業イベントを引っ張ってきました。また、大崎さんは「仕事仲間」という関係を超える友情をメンバーの間に立ち上げてきました。スペースのメンバーは、仕事場を共有するだけではなく、ランチや仕事以外の時間を共に過ごしています。私も、卓球会やタコ焼きパーティー、そしておでんや鍋会などのたくさんのイベントに招かれました。スペースのメンバー同士で、みんなの挑戦を応援し、成功を祝いました。

While Osaki-san is undoubtedly the heart of Osakan Space, the members share her spirit and actualize her vision. You can easily find successful and aspiring entrepreneurs sitting next to you. Many local startups, including MyISBN and Mimimiru, were born from Osakan Space. Members are also welcome to organize their own relevant events. During my stay, I’ve attended Scalar study group and tech demo day organized by the members. Surrounded by passionate entrepreneurs, it is hard not to be inspired.

A few months ago, I wrote about my Krash family in Boston. I am happy to share that I recently found myself another family in Osaka.

I came to Osaka from the U.S. to conduct postdoctoral research on Osaka’s historic Koreatown for two years. Most of my work involves writing for several hours a day. The solitary nature of my work often makes me feel isolated even when I am in my native country. After joining Osakan Space, I feel that I have been able to write more effectively and productively due to the warm and supportive environment of the members here. I am able to discuss what I am working on with capable and talented individuals who are in vastly different industries, and as a result, approach the topic that I am working on from a fresh perspective. I feel that the space has not only provided an ideal environment conducive to achieving my personal best as a writer, but it has also allowed me to establish a network of friends who have made my time in Osaka infinitely more meaningful and enjoyable.

わたしは日本の歴史的なKorea Town についての研究を行うため、二年間を目安にアメリカからやってきました。研究の殆どの内容が何時間にもわたる書き込み作業です。独りで行う作業なので、母国にいたときも、多くの時間は研究を淋しく感じていました。しかし、オオサカンスペースのメンバーになってからは、周りの人々のサポートを受ける環境のなかで研究を進める事ができ、結果的には以前よりも効果的に物事に取りかかる事が可能になりました。また、様々な才能や考えを持つ人々と意見を交わすことで、新鮮な視点から自分のタスクに立ち向かうことが出来ました。オオサカンスペースのおかげで、私は筆者としてのベストを達成でき、さらには大阪で友人や仕事仲間のネットワークを作り上げ、今後の日本での滞在を有効的に楽しく過ごす事が出来ると思います。

I’ve recently joined Osakan space after having only been in Japan for a few weeks. From the very beginning I have found the staff and tenants to be exceptionally friendly and helpful, and I was able to get up and running with my work straight away. The space is generally quiet, but there is a very warm atmosphere. A group will go for lunch every day, and you are free to join or do your own thing. There are some monitors you can use if you need to, and now even a 3d printer! There are regular social events in the evenings and presentations during the day. Overall I feel like I have landed on my feet at Osakan space, to the benefit of both my work and my social life!

If you’re considering working from Japan, either remotely or independently, then you’ve already begun to step outside your comfort zone. You’re unlike the majority. You’re adventurous. Well done!

If you’re up for the next two challenges, which involves dispelling some myths, your life will be changed even more.


While it is generally true in Japan that ‘the nail which sticks out, gets hammered,’ you can also thrive by being different. You will meet, and learn from, other people who are different from what the world demands them to be.


The second myth is ‘you can’t choose your family.’ Yes, you can.

At Osakan Space you will meet, mingle, share ideas & thoughts with, share food with, nurture and be nurtured by, laugh and cry with, some of the loveliest, kindest, intelligent folks I have had the immense pleasure of knowing.



They will surprise you, exceed your expectations, look past your struggling language skills, laugh at your foreign jokes, look puzzled by your sometimes unique way of looking at life, and open their hearts to you.

If you allow yourself to be open and allow everyone else at Osakan Space into your life, you will become part of their family, and they yours.

Make sure you take advantage of this thrilling and learning experience—and try coworking at Osakan Space!

I spent three weeks working remote from Osaka, and needed a place to work that offered more than just the WiFi of your average coffee shop. Osakan Space was just that: a comfortable, lively-yet-quiet office where I could be productive and get stuff done, as well as enjoy the company of great people working on all kinds of awesome projects. I was much more productive than I would have been staying in an apartment all day, and much less alone than I would have after three weeks in a coffeeshop. If you’re in Osaka and need a desk, come check it out!



Osakan space has provided for me the perfect working environment while abroad.


This little space is very well located and quiet with plenty of space making it possible to concentrate and achieve your work needs. The WiFi is fast and capable of online conferencing.


But, in my opinion, what makes me want to go back is the amazing people they have as staff working there. Even if you are not fluent in Japanese,they will do their best to be kind and considerate and find every way to bridge communication gaps and help in anyway possible, making you feel at home with their great fresh made coffee for you to enjoy and even social events.


It’s difficult to find anyplace comparable to Osakan space, even in cities (For example London or San Francisco)with more co-working spaces.


Don’t miss the opportunity and be sure to check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
I’m looking forward to go back to Osakan space when possible! You guys are amazing!

We spent an amazing couple of weeks in Osakan Space and had a fantastic time. We couldn’t recommend Osaka and Osakan Space highly enough as a place to stop by if you’re working from Japan. It’s a great place to spend some time.


The space itself is really well equipped: comfortable and ergonomic, with good lighting and lots of space to work from.But the real highlight of our stay was the amazing welcome that the team and our co-workers gave us. We really appreciated that everyone made an effort to make us feel welcome and included–from experience, that’s definitely not always the case when you’re visiting a new co-working space and not planning to stick around permanently.


We had some great times and some amazing hotpot nights too. Kanpai and matane to everyone at Osakan Space–hope to be back again someday!





When I moved to Japan, I was just looking for a place that gives me a place with consistent Wi-Fi and electricity that allows me to work remotely with our America headquarter and international offices. I used to hop across cafès in the Osaka area. But I quickly found out that they are too distracting with all the customers coming in and out. Moreover, I don’t feel secure leaving my bags and computers during breaks.  I came across Osakan Space, not only it was the kind of safe workspace I was looking for, it provided much more than I expected.


The airy open space is very comfortable and encourages communications between members, something that I was used to in the States. The members and staff are professionals from different fields and are all very friendly and are trying to  be helpful, even though I don’t speak much Japanese.


They also provide lockers, printer, monitors, copy machine, etc…everything you can think of to get work done, it’s there. It’s an environment which I feel welcomed and be productive. I would not hesitate to recommend Osakan Space to any travelers working in Osaka!




Do you want to work in a productive, social, and collaborative environment? If so, Osakan Space is the place to be!

I’m a ten-year veteran of using co-working spaces in Toronto. I spent three weeks at Osakan Space in December 2016. I’ve never felt more welcome and productive at a co-working space than I did at Osakan Space!



You’ll experience more than just a fast Internet connection at Osaka Space. The staff and community will welcome you with a curiosity, thoughtfulness, and friendliness that will immediately make you feel like you’re part of a small family of creative and innovative professionals.


You don’t have to worry about speaking Japanese at Osakan Space. Their staff are fluent enough to communicate in English, and some members can speak with perfect fluency.

I miss the staff and new friends I made in Osakan Space. I hope to go there again someday soon!

Osakan Space really is a superb co-working space in Osaka very welcoming with foreigners. Very friendly staff that even help you with the small subtlety of living in Japan if you ask nicely[1] !

オオサカン は本当に素晴らしいコワーキング スペースで、外国からの利用者を快くむかえてくれます。何か尋ねたら、とてもフレンドリーなスタッフが日本の生活での些細な事までアドバイスをくれます。(例は〔1〕で紹介しています)

The staff speak some English and when in need sometime other workers give you a hand 🙂
The space itself is big and luminous, with every amenities you could ask for in a co-working: small snack, coffee, screens, printers, etc…For a more than reasonable price.


They also hold various social events in and outside the space, but it rarely cause trouble if you just want to dig in your work (like around lunch and dinner)
For monthly members it’s open from 8 to midnight except on Sundays.


For example, I end up with many many one yen coin after spending 3 month in Japan, and Osaki-san, the owner, made a donation with the coin I wanted to get rid of. Thank again !

“I thoroughly enjoyed my two weeks at Osakan Space! It was more than what I expected!.
I was in Osaka for three weeks to study intensive Japanese language course.
While I was there, I wanted a place to focus and study. So I decided to join Osakan Space.
I got so much more than I expected.


The signing up process was easy and short.
It took less than 20 mins.
I was given a guided tour of the facility.
It is on Level -10 right opposite of one of the big temples!
I had a great time there – allowing me to concentrate and study and meeting with very friendly Japanese friends.
They have Miso soup for free day and coffee provided.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for co-working space or a place to concentrate and study.
You will get your work done while having the opportunity to mingle with others.
Most of the people I met during my two weeks were programmers, web designers, online freelancers.
Thank you very much for making me feel so welcomed! Vibrant, friendly nice co-working space! 5/5.










I spent 6 months in Osakan Space working and studying.
I highly recommend it if you are looking for a peaceful
and welcoming work place.
The location is very central with multiple subway lines around.
There are also a lot of shops around if you need anything.
The coworking space also provides everything I needed for.
A calm environment, good chairs, fast internet, extra monitors,
printers, a room for my professional calls, a mini bar …
But the most important was the friendly people working there, staff
and coworkers. Even though I could not speak Japanese,
they tried hard to communicate with me and help me out.
Everyone is open and pretty cheerful.
There are regular afterwork events too, I had a lot of fun there !
I would definitely work there again if I was back in Osaka.

Thanks for all the good moments !

手助けもしてくれます。オオサカンスペースの人たちは、オープンマインドで明るい人たちです。定期的にアフターワーク イベントも開催しています。とてもたのしく参加しました。
