Rich nature in Nishikori Park

Approximately 4 minutes by bus from Kongo Station. We came to Nishikori Park where we can enjoy beautiful nature. In the park, the hills are preserved as it was as much as possible. The old-fashioned landscape of the satoyama is 657,000 square meters, and it is a "green oasis" where you can feel the four seasons with your skin in abundant nature.

The undulating garden is so rich in nature that it is selected as one of the "100 Best Greens in Osaka". There are colorful plants on the walking path in the park. We also recommended you to stop for a while and observe slowly.

It is recommended not only to play actively with your family, but also to calm your mind surrounded by nature. Enjoy yourself at a park full of charm!
