I visited during the winter months and although I wasn’t expecting to see many large flowers, I did in fact see several spread out across a beautifully hard landscaped island. It’s particularly well done with the flower beds labelled with the approximate decade the flowers were developed. Walking eastward the gardens continue under a short tunnel and over a bridge into the park (which is primarily just lawn, trees, and modern sculpture. The rose garden itself is very peaceful with several items of furniture on which to seat yourself and temporarily rest. Really a beautiful garden indeed.
I love coming to this garden during October when the roses are in full bloom. There are a variety of riverside terraces available as well as pop up tents with things to taste and drink. The island itself provides a respite from the rest of the city as the rose garden area of the island is wide open and provides wide open views of the city buildings. The garden is particularly nice during golden hour when the sun reflects off of the buildings. I like that there are tables available outside of the riverside terraces that allow you to take out and enjoy your food while watching people gawk at the roses. The giant floating duck has docked itself right off of this side of the island in the past and there are numerous events such as yoga and small outdoor markets that occur here as well.
Beautiful place to stop by... in the middle of the city. Not just for the roses... for the atmosphere too. I love that it's surrounded by the river... the light is also great depending the time. The Rose's smell is helping to travel in your imagination. I love it
It's a good place for pit stop if you are visiting the area. It's located in the bank of a river so the atmosphere is very good. The roses just make it perfect. There are lots of different breeds of roses. All are beautiful not to mention. It is also a good place to visit by family and have a picnic.
It's beautiful well maintained rose garden in the middle of the city of Osaka. You can hangout, picnic with family, friends here. There is a lot of food truck also. When I came, there's so many food truck sell burger. This garden is surrounded by river. In the west side of the garden, there are some restaurants and I think it can be used for special events like wedding.
