#2 in Tennoji

Continuing my posts on which places to visit in Osaka, I'd recommend the Tennoji area southeast of the city.

This district of Osaka is home to:

  • an eponymous park and it Japanese garden named Keitaku-en
  • several Buddhist temples, the main one is called Shitennoji and was built during the sixth century, it is named after the four gods of heaven it worships
  • a zoo and the Municipal Museum of Art

Not that far away from Tennoji, is the typical area of ​​Shinsekai.
