Osaka City Central Public Hall

A beautiful remnant of early 20th-century Japan

Osaka City Central Public Hall was built in 1918, not long after the Meiji period ended. Today it stands out as the architectural jewel of Nakanoshima . Head inside to gaze at the restored stained glass windows and an expansive ceiling painting, or simply marvel at the beautiful red-brick exterior framed against the greenery on the promenade.

How to Get There

You can get to the hall by train.

From Osaka/Umeda Station, take the Midosuji subway line one stop to Yodoyabashi Station. Walk five minutes north across the river to Nakanoshima , then turn right. The orange neo-Renaissance architecture of Osaka City Central Public Hall will quickly come into view.

Meiji and Taisho period architecture

The Meiji and Taisho periods (1868-1926) were a time when Japan was undergoing complete transformation. Architects during this period adopted Western styles, and a handful of these beautiful buildings are still standing in Japan, including this hall.

Planning your journey
