Osaka is a big and exciting city! You’ll never get bored if you come to Osaka. It’s always bustled with many tourists around the world. That’s what I like about Osaka. But sometimes, I feel that I want to relax in a peaceful space such as a park. A park is one of favorite place to visit when I travel. I’ve already visited many beautiful parks in the world.
As Osaka is a big city, almost everybody think that there are no good parks here. But wait, wait a minute!! let’s me recommend you a nice park right now. It’s Utsubo Park! When I first came to Utsubo Park, it changed the image of Osaka. Even though it’s situated at the center of the city, it’s large. The area of this park is about 9,7h! And it’s covered with lots of greens and flowers. Exactly, it’s an Oasis in the city. An avenue of Keyaki which is Zelkova in English, spread before me. A fountain in the center of the park.
Lots of colorful flowers in the park. 150 kinds and 3,300 plants are in bloom from mid May to December. These are pure bliss for the eyes! It will remove the noise of our heart and instead, it will send the calmness to our heart.
The best time to visit here is in May. Beautiful roses blossom and you can appreciate many kinds of roses.
Here, we feel the change of the season even in the city. It’s a place where residents can relax. Many people spend their time at their own pace.
How about going for walk and taking and escape from the city here in Utsubo Park. So, you can recharge to explore Osaka again!
