Tennoji is a district of Osaka, accessible from the North exit of the eponymous station, located in the South-East of the japanese city. This district is mostly organized around the big park of 28 hectares (more than 8,000 square feet) and its temple named Shitennoji. It makes a relaxing break in the heart of the urban dynamism.
Known for its more traditional approach in the center of a not so famous city for being quiet, it offers a Japanese and botanical garden, one of the oldest temples of the archipelago among other religious monuments, and a zoo.
However the ward likes to gather Tennoji with its two neighborhoods : the typical Shinsekai and the conquering Abeno, enlarging the range of visits towards more commercial attractions, and their respective towers, in two approaches yet completely opposite.
From this zone of Osaka, numerous trains and other transportation leave in the direction of the South of the Kansai region.
