Osaka is one of the biggest cities in Japan. Although veganism is not very widespread here, the city has a bunch of 100% vegan places and even more vegan-friendly ones. In general, Osaka is not very different for vegans from other Japanese cities. The variety of vegan options in shops and supermarkets is almost the same as in Tokyo.
As in other places in Japan, if you are going to a non-vegan restaurant, make sure to explain your dietary preferences in detail. Many common ingredients, such as fish sauce or meat stock, may not be considered as non-vegan in Japan.
