Facts & Figures

The Tempozan Park is a beautiful little seaside park within the Tempozan district. Best Ryokans in OsakaExplore Ryokans in Osaka
Ryokans are the perfect way to discover old Japanese culture and traditions.
This quiet and relaxing place (built on top of an artificial mountain) contains the statue of Nishimura Sutezo. He was the local harbour chief of construction. The mountain with a height of 4.53 meter is called the lowest mountain in Japan and has been registered with the Geographical Survey Institute. The huge obelisk on top is an interesting sight. The sakura season (cherry blossom) in April is the best time to visit the park. Tip: Nearby the park is the starting point for a free ferry connection between Tempozan and Universal Studios Japan. It is a great way to explore the area.

Tempozan Park (Tempo - Japanese era from 1830 - 1844, zan stands for mountain) was created in 1831. After the nearby Ajigawa river was dredged the remaining sand was used to create a large hill (Tempozan Hill or Mejirushiyama). In 1958 the area opened as a park for the public.
