  • The park has a little bit of distance from the center of Osaka, but it's good to be in the same environment with a few wild elephants. The same garden pool and the pleasure of the game.

  • There is a big park, there is free to take the outing, there are shopping mall, there is also a Gundam in the dining hall, the special, but the characteristics of the Shang field is not enough, unless there is a designated brand, it will wander aimlessly

  • The Japan World Exposition 1970 was the first Expo to be held in Asia, 77 countries were involved and they had 64 million visitors over the 180 days of the Expo. When you approach this park, you are confronted with Taiyonoto which is a huge structure that was the symbol for the Expo. It’s a great way to spend a day, there are the Japanese Gardens, the Expo Pavilion and much more, the pavilion gives you an idea of what the Expo was like with actual film and displays. I thoroughly enjoyed this park and highly recommend it.
  • Very huge and well maintained park. Good location for various seasonal outdoor activities, as well as to enjoy a variety of beautiful seasonal flowers every month.
  • This is one of the best places to see cherry blossoms in Osaka. It's a really big park, so you can do quite a lot of exploring as well
  • A beautiful park that can be enjoyed during every season of the year. There is a ¥200 fee to get in, but that keeps the park well maintained and keeps the crowds away.
  • I visited here because of mange "20th Century Boys" (20世紀少年). It is a little distant from city centre of Osaka (like Namba or Umeda) and the transportation is a little costly. However, this park area is high recommended for the surrounding and there are several huge shopping centres nearby. Everyone would like to take shoots for the iconic figure at the front, there are also several themes among the park and the entrance ticket is cheap. Also, the ethnology museum located inside the park brings many interesting topics as well but extra charges. Very suitable for family even solo traveler.
