Opened in 2003, Namba Parks spans eight levels of a 30-story office tower and mall. It’s an urban oasis with terraces, a narrow central canyon, vegetable gardens, waterfalls, and rock clusters—and the ingenious solution of what to do with the space formerly occupied by Osaka’s baseball stadium. Adjacent to the Namba train station, the park makes a big first impression on new arrivals.
This place is amazing. There are shops and restaurants which are ok (not Osaka's best), but the architecture is amazing.The main 'street' is like a canyon, and on the roof are the most amazing gardens. Sitting up here in the sun with an ice tea, watching people and admiring the view is so relaxing
Namba Park is beyond cool - this place is unreal. Sure it's a huge office building, mall and restaurant venue, but it's also an architectural spectacle that is not to be missed. A series of terraces, crevasses and green spaces top the multi-level building and make for a quirkily rad afternoon of wandering this lattice-work of parks.
Namba forms a dramatic new identity for the city. Alongside a 30-storey office tower and 46-storey residential tower, the project features a new lifestyle commercial center with a rooftop park that crosses multiple blocks while gradually ascending eight levels from the streets of Osaka city
