    Osaka Osakashi Konohana-ku Hokkoushiratsu 2-2-7

    外観の感想です。 舞洲?の方に行くときに見かけるかなり目立つ建物です。 初めて見たときは何らかのテーマパーク的なものかと思いましたが、ごみの処理施設とのことです。 イメージを何とか改善したいとも思いは分からなくありませんが、建物にお金をかけるのは違うと思います。 この感じ方は人それぞれだと思いますが、そういう事を考える機会となる場所だとは思いました。

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."
