  • The Osaka City Central Public Hall is a European style, Taisho Period architecture, and is used for cultural, artistic, and social activity purposes. We'd seen the building frequently on our tours...

  • The Nakanoshima Central Public Hall, which has become a symbol of Osaka, the US planning, since 1853, to make use of Japan as a foothold in Asia for consistent strategy during World War II. It escaped the repeated air raids of the US Army's B29 strategic bomber, and still remains today with sad memories. It is a historic building filled with the strong energy of Osaka merchants. This is also a cultural heritage that tells the history of the city of water Osaka. Dojima and Nakanoshima are highly recommended in Osaka, a city of merchants. You can enjoy the scenery even after sunset thanks to the lighting.
  • A beautiful red brick neo-renaissance building from the Taisho period, with 16 rooms that can be booked for functions, weddings, etc. It is free to visit the small museum on the basement floor (B1F) which tells the history of the building and also a number of other culturally significant buildings in the area. And there is a restaurant on the same floor. To view the the various function rooms and auditoriums which are decorated with beautiful oil paintings, including the 'Special Room' which has a painted ceiling, you need to book a guided tour. Tours are run in Japanese. The building is located on Nakanoshima which is lovely to walk along.
