Osaka Gardens

Osaka Gardens

This garden oasis, once the site of the Japanese Pavillion during the 1893 World’s Columbia Exposition, is now a prized urban retreat. Reach this hard-to-find spot by turning onto Science Drive, and enter through the iconic torii gate—like the entrance to an ancient shrine. Your search will be rewarded with an afternoon of zen amongst the bubbling carp pools and flowering cherry trees.
