Osaka is located at the mouth of the Yodo River on Osaka Bay, in the Kansai region of the main island of Honshū. Osaka has historically been the commercial capital of Japan, and is at the heart of Japan's second largest metropolitan area of Keihanshin (Osaka-Kobe-Kyoto). The ratio between daytime and night time population is 141%, the highest in Japan, highlighting its status as an economic center. Its nighttime population is 2.6 million, the third in the country, but in daytime the population surges to 3.7 million, second only after Tokyo. Osaka has traditionally been referred to as the "nation's kitchen", or the Mecca of gourmet food.
Momoyama Gakuin University, also known as St Andrew's University, is a private, co-educational university located in Izumi near Osaka. It has a Christian background.
