    Osaka Osakashi Tsurumi-ku Ryokuchikouen 2-163
    The indoor botanical garden at Tsurumi-Ryokuchi boasts Japan's largest greenhouse by surface area. It was opened in 1990 as the Osaka Pavilion for The International Garden and Greenery Exposition. Built with steel frames and glass walls, standing two stories tall, its design was made to evoke the imagery of the water lilies floating in the wetlands surrounding it. Within the building there are a variety of halls dedicated to the various climates and vegetation found on Earth, from the tropics to the polar regions. Seasonal flowers are included and there are usually in excess of 300 different varieties for you to enjoy.

    This is a very worthwhile outing from central Osaka, easily done on the subway. The walk is 15-minutes from the nearest stop, but it's through the grounds of a 1990 exposition, that have been made...

    This botanical garden is south-east of Nagai Park, in front of the Midosuji Line's Nagai Station. The garden covers approximately 24.2 hectares, and cherry trees, tulips and hydrangeas are planted so the garden is in bloom all year round. In addition to these, rare ancient plants and trees, such as Metasequoia, also known as living fossils are exhibited in the gardens. There is also a log house in the herb garden, which offers a free herbal tea service on the first and third Saturday of each month.

    We have been in Japan for 2 weeks and have seen some beautiful gardens. These gardens are very neglected - a total disappointment and so unJapan like. Rubbish in the pond, dead plants, weeds...

The outdoor garden is planted with around 450 varieties of trees and plants with a focus on Japanese species, including a recreation of a Japanese forest containing 11 of Japan’s most well-known species, as well as areas dedicated to plants from other countries, cherry trees, maples, plum trees, and aquatic plants. The garden regularly holds guided tours as well as seasonal events such as cherry and plum blossom viewing parties.

    Went there expecting perfection, found 5 foot high paspalum growing through the unkempt hedges. I was sorely disappointed.

While Osaka prefecture is the country's second smallest prefecture, its capital, Osaka City, is the country’s third-largest and arguably one of the most popular in the Kansai region thanks to its vibrant nightlife, the Osaka people’s openness, and its much-loved cuisine, which has earned it the nickname “the nation’s kitchen."
