Fukushima is a small ward located about 500 meters west of JR Osaka station (Kita-ku), and surrounded by the Yodo River to the north, and the Dojima River to the south. The ward developed as a commercial district close to the city centre. Transport is very conveniently with main highways such as the National Highway Route 2 and the Naniwa-suji, and trains such as the JR Loop Line,JR Tozai Line, the municipal subway Sennichimae-Line, and the Hanshin Line all running through major parts of the ward. In the south-west of Fukushima is the Osaka Municipal Wholesale Markets, which are referred to as Pantry of Osaka citizen. In the inner city, surrounded by the main transport lines, there are areas where traces of the past can be seen in gatherings of old Japanese style houses and stone pavements. Many people in Fukushima have lived there for a long time, and a prosperous community has developed.
