UPDATED: In autumn 2015 the latest project, Osaka Expoland will be inaugurated. This will be the largest entertainment and shopping center in all Japan, reactivating the whole area of the Expo ’70 Bampaku park.

The Expo ’70 Bampaku Park in Osaka has a special charm, now old fashioned and nearly abandoned, yet some people goes there for running, spending the day and barbaque. Seemed most of the facilities are just there as a reminder, still maintenance and attendance to the park was clear. As for the main monument, the Tower of Sun, is well known and recognisible around anywhere in Japan. To access the park drop off at Bampaku Kinen Koen station, of the Osaka monorail. It’s a short walk from there to the park and you can see the Tower of Sun from the station.

Once packed with kids, on a normal day has more an air of abandoned park.
