Namba Parks
Holiday Travel Guide

Find some respite in a leafy oasis terraced across eight levels of an inner-city shopping mall, where parks and gardens blend with contemporary architecture.

Namba Parks is a shopping mall that offers a green getaway in the heart of Namba Naka. This architecturally stunning complex interweaves storefronts and shopping areas with spacious lawns, ponds, waterfalls and tree groves spread across the mall’s rooftops. Explore the multi-level complex and its collection of shops, dining areas and entertainment venues. Peer down through the complex’s canyon-like gap to see passers-by on the streets below as you make your way to the complex’s tree-lined summit.

Enter Namba Parks from the street and check out the range of cafés, shops and venues dotted throughout its ground level. Look up at the complex’s 30-story Parks Tower and the vegetation growing out from the terraces overhead. Make your way through a network of stairways and sloped paths that gently ascend eight levels of rooftop areas. The spacious complex was built in the footprint of Osaka’s former baseball stadium. Completed in 2003 by the Jerde Partnership, the complex today represents the city’s green lung and is a popular spot for city workers and residents to relax and enjoy the greenery.

Check out the range of shops that span the 2nd through 5th floors of Namba Parks. You’ll find label-name clothing retailers and boutique shops showing the latest trends. As you explore the terraces, you’ll come across small garden plots for vegetable patches and street vendors. Namba Parks has a program of live events that are held in the spacious outdoor amphitheater, as well as seasonal highlights in the gardens. Check the complex’s program of events online.

The 6th level of Namba Parks is dedicated to dining areas and restaurants. Pick from different styles of Japanese cuisine, as well as Korean and Italian. Enjoy a formal dinner or pick up a quick snack to enjoy amid the greenery.

Namba Parks is located in Namba Naka to the south of Namba Station. The complex is free to visit and easy to access from street level and the railway station.
