The other South of Osaka, more traditional
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.
