  • Place names in the island nation is fine, but is it in Osaka Yodoyabashi bridge (Yodoyabashi) have centered around the North West, Bank of Japan Osaka Branch, Osaka City public hall, locations that aggregate rihga Royal Hotel, Osaka International Convention Center, Osaka Science Museum, International Museum of art and many cultures and history. A huge sandbank was making both the dojima River, tosabori River known as artificial [Nakanoshima Island] and named. Now that road for pedestrians or sandbank in the English garden, Cherry has become a place for trees and the four seasons.

  • Great to have a park like this in the middle of the city, and there is history behind it. During my visit in September, there were no roses in the rose garden, and very few people around. There's a couple western style cafes and restaurants to enjoy a coffee or meal in the park with views of the water. Otherwise, nice for just a stroll.
  • This lovely small garden in the middle of an island in the middle of the city. Aptly named the Rose Garden, the park comes to life and at its most beautiful in the spring. Walking along the park and the river is just a stress relief past-time.
  • Weekend festivals with music, art, and food are a must see while in Osaka. The rose garden is beautiful and very well kept, so enjoy a break and walk through.
  • Lovely park in the river you can feel like in Europe had and unique feeling
  • If you want a break from the bustling City you can just come here and relax. I enjoy the art installations and Rose garden.
