The Port of Osaka enjoys a profound history in maritime commerce which can date back to the mid-6th century. Since its opening to foreign trade in 1868, the port has continued to prosper and become one of the major trade ports in Japan.  

Well connected to about 600 ports in approximately 140 countries and regions, the port provides strong support for the country’s economic activities with a consumer base of 21 million in the Kinki region. It handles around 80 million tons of cargo annually, 55% of which is from China.  

By the end of August 2019, the port had served 228 routes to/from China each month, with growing freight volumes from Shanghai and Guangzhou. 

The Ports of Osaka and Kobe, as parts of the Hanshin Port, were selected as Strategic International Container Ports by the national government in August, 2010. 

The Hanshin region, of which Osaka city is a part, is one of the most industrialized areas in Japan and its economic importance is second only to the Tokyo-Yokohama region. A complex of heavy industries such as steel making, oil refining, chemical processing and ship building were already developed at the port. 

The city Osaka in western Japan is famous for its food and sake, which attracts a large number of tourists all year round. The port serves as the main gateway to well-known historical cities, Kyoto and Nara, with an extensive water network.

Cruise ships dock at the Tempozan Passenger Terminal which boasts a vibrant waterfront with a number of recreational facilities and is close to attractions like the Osaka Aquarium, the Tempozan Marketplace and the Ferris Wheel.  

The port also operates domestic and international ferries and is extending its logistics services to facilitate the export of agricultural and fishery products.

大阪港具有十分悠久的历史,早在1400年前就和中国、朝鲜等港口有着密切的来往。大阪市内河道纵横,有"水都"之称,是前往日本两大著名古都——京都和奈良的海上门户。1868年,大阪港正式开辟为对外贸易港。 

大阪港是日本五大集装箱港口之一,与全球140多个国家和地区约600个港口建立了密切联系,货物年吞吐量达8000万吨,其中有94%的运输货物来自亚洲,55%来自中国。截至2019年8月底,平均每月有228条来自中国的国际航线靠离大阪港,其中来自上海和广州南沙港的货物运输量也日益增长。 

大阪港所处的近畿圈拥有2100万人口,是国内最大的生产消费圈,对日本的经济活动贡献巨大。同时港口也是阪神工业区的核心,轻重工业综合发展,其工业产值仅次于京滨工业区,居日本第二位,主要工业有石油化工、钢铁、金属加工、造船及炼油等。大阪被称作“日本食堂”,因此大阪港也很重视扩大物流渠道,加大农产品及新鲜渔业产品的出口。 

港口的天保山客运码头每年接待大量的邮轮旅客,饮食、购物和娱乐设施完备,并邻近大阪海游馆、天保山市场街和摩天轮等著名旅游景点。港口同时也承接国内和国际的轮渡服务。 

2010年8月,日本国交省选定阪神港(大阪港、神户港)和京滨港(东京港、川崎港、横滨港)为“国际集装箱战略港口”,集中进行建设以打造亚洲的枢纽港口。
