Sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle life in the midst of Minami, southern part of Osaka city!

  • Shopping

The site was originally Osaka Stadium, the home of the Nankai Hawks from 1950 to 1988. The stadium was once used as the concert hall by Madonna and Michael Jackson.

Namba Parks is a complex comprised of an office building called Parks Tower and shopping & dining facilities in front of Namba station. The complex was developed by American architect Jon Jerde of the Jerde Partnership, who also created Canal City HAKATA or Roppongi Hills. In his concept the building exterior gives magnificent image with its wall looking like a great valley. The wall surface represents grand passage of time and layers of the earth.

There is a carnival mall on the first floor. For shopping 254 shops are located from the 2nd floor to the 5th floor. The fifth floor specializes in children with nursing room (hot water is available for your baby’s milk), kids’ restroom (small toilets for boys and girls) and “Kodomonia” (kids’ playroom). Casual style restaurants are on the 6th floor, high-class and a variety of restaurants on the 7th and 8th floors. You are sure to find your favorite meal out of more than 30 restaurants. The 8th floor also has Park Cinema and an amphitheater. The top 9th floor has Nankai Hawks memorial gallery, “Harappa Plaza” with playing tools for small children, Parks Garden.

At the outdoor garden on the top floor, you can relax feeling the breeze next to the skyscraper, the Namba Tower Residence.

Why not enjoy walking down the slope from the top to the carnival mall along the greenery spots like groves of trees, small streams or flower gardens?
The Namba Park offers a sum of all natural elements in the uniquely designed garden.
