The waterways of Osaka play a vital role in the Osaka rejuvenation program. In order to carry out the restoration of public places with strict regulations regarding scenery and use, various tests and inspections have been conducted, and the many issues that arise are treated as challenges rather than roadblocks. Key areas of improvement include legal reform, municipal design, the establishment of new public policy, and the hosting of regional conventions.


The greenery and buildings that spread out from the waterways and the lit-up buildings and bridges combine to create Osaka’s own precious natural space and scenery.
Walk along the waterways where people live, work, and enjoy their daily lives, or perhaps travel along them by boat, and you’re sure to find your own way of enjoying Osaka.
