This is one of my favoite places in Osaka. Keitakuen Garden in Tennoji Park. It used to be the garden of Sumitomo family's principal residence at Mt. Chausu, Tennoji, Osaka, by spending 10 years from 1908. It is a large, modern Japanese garden of style to be appreciated by strolling through a forest around the pond ("Rinsen Kaiyū-shiki Teien"). Later this garden was donated to Osaka city along with Mt. Chausu.
Don't you think heart-shaped leaves look pretty?
This garden is in the center of Osaka city. Near the garden you can see a big construction area. This gigantic, modern building is Abeno Harukasu, which will be open in spring 2014. According to the plan, we will enjoy the 360 degrees panorama from 300-meter-high observatory.
