    It means "on the way to". – tautophile Jun 15 '18 at 14:08
  • And Osaka more or less rhymes with Morocco. "Morocco bound" is a pun on "on the way to Morocco" and "held together with supple Morocco leather, like an expensive book" which was popularized by the movie "The Road to Morocco" and its sequels. – jejorda2 Jun 15 '18 at 14:12

    Welcome to EL&U. One of the expectations of Stack Exchange is that you indicate your initial research, so that we do not duplicate efforts. At a minimum, what did a dictionary lookup of bound turn up for you, and why was it not sufficient to answer the question? – choster Jun 15 '18 at 16:06


bound: intending to go : going
bound for home, college-bound

Also used in the title of the song Homeward Bound.
