Osaka City Central Public Hall大阪市中央公会堂

Historical Monument

A symbol of the knowledge, culture, and history of Osaka, construction on Osaka City Central Public Hall began in 1911 with a one million yen donation in building funds from Einosuke Iwamoto, with the hall opening in 1918. Brick reinforced with steel beams in construction, with three floors above ground and one basement level, the architecture of this extravagant building applies the Neo-Renaissance style as its basic tone while also presenting majestic baroque touches. In addition to concerts by celebrated orchestras from around the world, the hall has also played host to lectures by historical figures such as Helen Keller. The building was registered a national Important Cultural Property in 2002.

Review of Osaka City Central Hall

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/10/23 Nice building
This is an interesting structure which might be worth a quick look by way of contrast to most of the modern buildings in the Osaka city centre. I didn't go inside, but it looked good from the outside.

Osaka Main Areas


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."
