1Osaka Maishima Seaside Park

Just Opened In 2019! 1 million Nomophila flowers at Maishima, Osaka Prefecture! You're encouraged to see the great blue view at seaside by any means. In the site, there're food court and to take a rest and seats to see the landscape leisurely.

Maishima Seaside Park is located in Maishima, Osaka. It was a lily garden, but now, there're 1 million Nemophila spreading to the site. A tulip and poppy can be seen among a blue carpet. And a character Mone-nyan is lovely too. We can take pictures of the ocean beyond the flowers, and if the timing is good, cherry blossom and Nemophila together.

Maishima Seaside has Nemophila festival from this year 2019. The lily garden had opened till the last year, but we can see the Nemophila blue spreading to the whole surface this year!

2Osaka Tanabata Sky Lantern Festival

A sky lantern event held on August 18th and 19th in Yodogawa, Osaka. (It's held around 7/7 every year, but it was postponed because of rain this year.) About 3000 sky lanterns flew to the night sky, it was so wonderful scenery.

'Sky Lantern' is famous in Taiwan. We could do that in Osaka! The fantastic world like Disney's 'Rapunzel' spread over the urban night sky. I made wishes to the sky lanterns, and I was completely fascinated with the scenery.◎I was held on 2018, August 18th and 19th.

Tanabata Sky Lantern Festival held at Yodogawa Kasen Park in Osaka. It's like a world of Disney's 'Rapunzel'. Slowly and fluffy, we could be feel relaxed...

3Osaka Castle

55 meters above the ground, in 5 layers, 8 floors, grampus on the roof, lying tiger and on, gold ornaments shine beautifully anywhere in the castle.

A Japanese garden located in the same site of Osaka Castle is known to only a few people. The castle seen from the Japanese garden is more beautiful, and what's more, you can see the reflected castle in the pond. It's a must-visit place when you come to Osaka Castle.

We can see the cherry blossom in full bloom and Osaka Castle at the same time in this season. The cherry blossom was late this year, so we could see the castle's blue illumination for the World Autism Awareness Day together. The cherry blossom are going to be at their best, why don't you come?

4Tsutenkaku Tower

Osaka's major tourist spot, Tsutenkaku. There're many funny factors in this tower, but night Tsutenkaku is also nice! I admired illuminated Billiken, and then look outside, I could have a clear view of Abeno Harukas.◎It has easy access by train, and also toll parking area nearby. You can find nice Kushikatsu restaurants around Tsutenkaku, and Spa World Onsen in a walkable area. It's good for you to spend a whole day to enjoy Tsutenkaku and its around.

5Osaka Maishima Lily Garden

A flower field of 2.5 million lilies. It has an easy access from the city central, you can enjoy the beautiful flowers at ease. The scenery of full-bloom colorful lilies is very impressive. This year, they're going to transplant the 120 thousand bulbs, and renewal the flower field.◎They have different opening hours by days of the week. The opening hours on weekends is longer, so you can see the lily garden with the sun setting to the Osaka Bay.

Osaka Maishima Lily garden is located just the side of the sea! It's very spacious and has incredible range of lily. I like this nice place with the sea breeze and the fragrance of lilies!

A lily garden, located Maishima, Osaka Prefecture, has colorful lilies not only white. What's more, as an option, they offer the helicopter tour to enjoy the bird's eye view of the whole lily garden.

6Umeda Sky Building

Kuchu Teien Observatory is a scenic spot in just 7 min walk from Osaka Station. You can enjoy seeing the wonderful view in daytime, evening and night. I could see the beautiful setting sun this time.◎Admission fees: adult 1000 yen, child 200 yen. The observatory opening hours: 10:00-22:30.

A skyscraper of 173 meters high with 40 stories above the ground. The figure is like a Triumphal Arch created by the modern architect. On the highest floor, there's a beautiful garden in the air and attracts sightseers from all over the world.


Very impressive 'World No.1 Tree Of Lights' is as tall as 35 meters and 550800 electric bulbs are used. It has awarded a Guinness records for six consecutive years and is familiar as a representative tree in Kansai region. But it comes to an end on 1/9 in 2017. Don't miss the last shine!

I could go UNIVERSAL STUDIO JAPAN unexpectedly. Of course the rides are attractive, its landscape which makes us feel like being not in Japan, is also fascinating!

8Ura Tenma Chochin Dori Street

A drinking district at Osaka Uratenma. There're many Japanese lanterns called Chōchin decorated on the ceiling, and all Izakaya bars around here taste good. It's good for your Instagram, isn't it? It's not so crowded with people.

Osaka Tenma Ichiba Market is called 'a kitchen of Naniwa'. At the arcade located north of it, as many as 1000 lanterns appeared suddenly! The street is lined with various bars, so we can enjoy short-time-drinking and bar-hop!

9Abeno Harukas

Abeno Harukas is the highest building in Japan. The night view of Osaka looked from here is amazing! On sunny day, you can see the beautiful sunset as a beginning, the golden hour, and then the night view on the whole surface under the building.

In the bldg. Abeno Harukas, Harukas 300 is the stylish observation tower. The passageway is surrounded by glass from the floor to the top, and there is huge open ceiling structure in the center. Osaka boasts the sky walking in 300m high with the superb view.


Entering into an alley, I found a new world there. Just looking at the flashy signboards is exciting, and I became addicted to take pictures. There're many shops I want to visit!

Showy buildings and restaurants, you can enjoy the atmosphere like Osaka.
