Fodor's Review

Originally the site of Expo 1970, the garden-filled Senri Expo Park still draws visitors thanks to the presence of the National Museum of Ethnology, the Japan Folk Art Museum, and the enormous statue by Taro Okamoto called the Tower of the Sun. Located outside the city center, the park offers an interesting look at how Osaka has blossomed in the postwar years in the Expo Land exhibit. To get to the park, take the Mido-suji subway line to Senri-Chuo Station (20 minutes

from Umeda); then take the monorail to Bampaku Koen-mae (10 minutes).
