No, nasty.

women in Osaka



People in Osaka seem to have a tendency to hate people who create an internal barrier. Attitudes such as being cocky, self-conceited, and showing off. Or being two-faced, putting on airs, being too formal, superficial, timid and stingy. They feel alienated when being told hollow words, and they feel like saying to a person next to them, "That idiot!" as soon as they see someone doing something with transparent intentions. They both feel and judge in their own way, which is ahead of the times.
