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.

I went to the Osaka Hikari Renaissance on Nakanoshima Island without any expectations or prior knowledge to the event and it turned out surprisingly well. It was a lot of fun! I walked with a bunch of other people around the island looking at different illuminations (lights?). There's the Giant Rubber Duckie near the Dojima River Forum at the moment... More
