  • Nice place to walk, especially during the winter lights season. Went mid week, the lights were beautiful, the crowds weren't bad and the food stalls were tasty. The projection mapped show on the old city building was pretty impressive and surprisingly not overly crowded.
  • This place is amazing, for walk and have a great time. The view and environment is beautiful
  • Nice place to visit if you love flowers, lots of various species of flowers here. And some of them is planted almost 100 years ago if I am not wrong.
  • Not as anticipated.....also it was hard to find restuarents nerby.... so make sure you eat something or pack some thing before you go there
  • Beautiful park in the middle of Osaka city with library, museum, rose garden and historical buildings. River-view restaurants are popular during lunch. Easy access from subway and Keihan stations.

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
