Located next to Tennoji Station, the southern gateway to Osaka, Tennoji Park is an urban green spot like New York’s Central Park or Hyde Park in London. It was first opened in 1909 and has one of the most colorful histories of Osaka’s parks. With the 1987 Tennoji Exposition serving as a turning point, the park was refurbished and reopened as a pay park in 1990. Located in it are: Chausuyama Tumulus and Kawazokoike Pond, both interesting historical spots; the former Kuroda Clan’s rice granary, which is a building from the mid-Edo Era and designated as an Osaka Prefecture Tangible Cultural Asset; Keitakuen Garden, a wood-and-fountain-based stroll-type garden which charms and delights visitors with its natural landscapes of the four seasons; a greenhouse, mattress flower beds, and a 100-meter-long, 4-meter-wide passage decorated with a rose arch made of climbing roses. Tennoji Park is also home to the Tennoji Zoological Gardens and the Osaka Municipal Museum of Art.

This is an overview of Japan

The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention.

The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on.

They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro.

So far, so good. But when Izanagi and Izanami first met on their island, Izanami spoke to Isanagi without being spoken to first. Since she was the female, and this was improper, their first union created badly-formed offspring who were sent off into the sea in boats.

The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan.

I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society.

At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. It has the second largest economy in the world and the largest metropolitan area (Tokyo.)

Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Izanagi and Izanami must have been busy little devils with their jewelled halberd...

Japan's culture is highly technical and organized. Everything sparkles and swooshes on silent, miniaturized mechanisms.

They're a world leader in robotics, and the Japanese have the longest life-expectancy on earth.
