Osaka can be a ugly dreary city but there are some beautiful spots like this. The park has one of the only grass areas in the city. A great space to relax close to the river. And a few places to eat too.

As we visited Osaka in... More

Went here on the late April and there were not much flowers. Atmosphere was a kind of dried. But very good to have a walk.

It was a nice park surrounded by river and building. It is great for the photographing op. Unfortunately for us, we did not have more chances to explore the park as we would like since it rained.

This is the best location near to hotel-super osaka city hotel. The atmosphere, river front, garden are all very nice. The convention centre is very near to this area.

You can find a giant rubber duck made by a Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman. This giant rubber duck is spreading at some places around the world and one of it is at Nakanoshima. During the night, you can also see water fountain show which is held 4 times in an hour from 6 to 9 PM.
