I have never been to New York so I have no idea, but a certain Japanese guy that we met in the park claims that this park is Osaka’s Central Park. Maybe because it is located right in the middle of the business area of Osaka. One thing to is sure though I liked the rose garden.
These pictures were taken last summer of 2012. The fountains were on and the kids were playing in the water while the parents are enjoying the roses. Young lovers, group of friends were also just sitting around near the rose bushes.
It’s 5 minutes walk from Honmachi Station on Yotsubashi Line. More information here.
