"This plate is for temporary operation of a vehicle, most often used by used car dealers. They are issued at the municipal level.
The Kanji on the left denote the Land Transportation Office region (in this case Naniwa, which is the downtown part of Osaka), and the Kanji at the bottom right denote the municipal division, in this case it is Kita-ku (North Ward) of the city.
This is a current style (January 2008) plate, it is not easy to know how old this actually is, I'm guessing 5-10 years old at most."
