Nakanoshima
A 1.8-mile island along the Yodo River, Nakanoshima is the nucleus of Osaka’s business district and home to some of the city’s most historic buildings, including the City Hall, the Nakanoshima Festival Tower and the first branch of the Bank of Japan. 

The main highlight of Nakanoshima is its eponymous park, a verdant oasis that stretches along the eastern half of the island and offers a welcome change of scenery from the looming office blocks and financial headquarters. Along with its tranquil waterfront walkways and tree-lined picnic areas, the 11-hectare park also boasts a magnificent rose garden, which blooms with more than 310 colorful rose varieties during the summer months. The small island is also home to a number of significant museums, including the Science museum, the Museum of Oriental Ceramics and the National Museum of Art.

Practical Info

Nakanoshima Island is located in the Central Business District in northern Osaka.

Big city Osaka is the largest city in western Japan. Another name for Osaka is the city of food and water, which is one of the 47 distinctive prefectures. The people who live here are very energetic and have many interesting people It is a town where many people live together because there are many noisy people. It is said that western Japan has a history more than eastern Japan, and Osaka, like Kyoto, is a town full of attractions.

【Nakanoshima park&Tenjinbashi 】Survival Japanese lesson & street food hopping!

We'll walk around the beautiful riverside park 'Nakanoshima' and find somewhere to sit for survival Japanese lesson. This is one of my favorite place in Osaka;-) There are a lot of historical buildings and also very relaxing park area, people call this area 'The oasis in the metropolis' Also there's a library which has a long history and unique European style. We'll start with self introduction in Japanese and then we'll practice some greeting words, then step up to next level 'phrases frequently used for shopping / restaurant' etc. Then we'll walk through the longest shopping arcade in Osaka which is called 'Tenjinbashi' and drop by 'Tenmangu' shrine nearby. This shopping street has a lot of old / unique shops which you can't find in the down town area, very local!! I'll pick up some street food shops on the way, you can fill up your stomach with 1000 yen! (You can trust my recommendations, I was born and raised in Osaka, 100% Osaka local!) ★1000 yen is included in the tour fee.★
