Neighborhood: Minato-ku
Overview

Tempozan is one of the more attractive and popular waterside areas of Osaka, and this park occupies a small corner of the district. It is a quiet, relaxing place in an otherwise bustling area, but is also somewhat nondescript. It does, however, have some history. In 1831, a four-and-a-half-meter man-made mound was created in the shape of a mountain after a nearby river was dredged. 'Tempo' was the name of the era in which it was constructed, while 'zan' indicates 'mountain', hence the name of the area. All that remains now is a small plaque and old artistic renderings of the hill.
