Nakanoshima Area

This area, which two rivers run through and cultural facilities are concentrated, is one of the business centers representing the city. You can enjoy the atmosphere of “Aquapolis Osaka” while strolling on the sophisticated streets with a mixture of retro and modern buildings, and in the Nakanoshima Park. The view from the boat on the river is also great.

Nakanoshima Park, which has a tranquil atmosphere even in the day time, is one of my favorite places. I recommend to take a relaxing walk while looking at retro buildings around this area then rest at a fashionable café and restaurant.

Renaissance of Light in Osaka

  • 見る

I hadn't seen such wonderful illuminations like that in China. It was so beautiful that I was really amazed. Illumination of buildings of European style was like a world of dream. It was a short time but I felt really happy.

Osaka Science Museum

You can learn about many scientific things such as how electricity is made. I recommend this science museum because Vietnam doesn't have such a facility like this. It's recommended especially to young people and families with children.
