Find a slice of serenity amid the Osaka hustle at Utsubo Park, a large 9.7 ha (24 ac) urban green space with well-lit ponds and fountains. You can play soccer or tennis, or admire bronze sculptures of families fully dressed in real second-hand clothing, representing love and harmonious family life. Formerly one of the city's busiest wholesale fish markets before being turned into a US military airfield, the park houses Osaka's science and technology center and the Utsubo tennis center, which hosts some international tournaments.

  • During our visit we came across this park by chance and we felt at peace once inside. Trees, greenery, decks. Beautiful and calm small park.  more »
  • Utsubo-koen is a great place to escape the city for a bit. It has a wonderful rose garden and some shade under the trees which is a popular spot for families and groups of friends to spend time...  more »

  • Nice park split into two halves one half is all tennis courts the other is like a normal park. The side with the tennis courts there is a police box if you need them they are there it is near the road splitting the two halves of the park, the other half has a little river in the middle with ponds at each end plenty of benches to rest and flowers to look at, it is also good for jogging and pet friendly but so hot on a hot day
  • It is just a usual park, but in May there are a plenty of roses. It was so beautiful and enjoyable. You can do a kind of picnic here, and if you have children with ages of less than 12, he or she can enjoy playing water here. By the way, it is a good place to see beautiful roses in Osaka.
