On our last day in Japan, we wanted to go outdoors. What a great choice it was, to visit the Expo '70 Park! We walked through woods and meadows, waded through small rivers, visited the mall for some great shopping, but best of all, climbed the Beast - the world's largest athletic tower and a challenge for all ages. Too bad the Park closes so early...

The Expo 70s Commemorative Park is a huge park about 50 min away from the Osaka city centre (by metro/train), or 30 min by car/taxi. I took the Midosuji subway line up all the way to Senrichuo Station, and then changed for the Osaka Monorail to Bampakukinenkoen Station. The entire journey took ~50 min and cost ~700 yen for the metro and monorail. From what I gather, locals are more familiar with the name “Bampaku” rather than 70s Expo Park, so refer to it by the former if you need help with directions. It also costs 260 yen per adult to enter the park, which should be valid for the entire day, so do hold on to it if you wish to exit and re-enter. The ticket I paid for was for the gardens only, entry to other places (museum or pavilion) within the grounds will require extra costs.

I visited the park during autumn season, and the best autumn spots it seems are the Maple Valley and Waterfall areas, which is to the west of the sprawling park, or the Japanese Garden to the north of the park. At the Maple Valley area, I highly recommend going up the tree-top walk for the breathtaking view, and do not miss the waterfall! The waterfall isn’t very tall or grand by any means, but the surrounding autumn leaves are a magnificent sight. Definitely worth the walk (some steps and cobblestones) to reach it. The Japanese Garden also has its fair share of autumn leaves, but this time paired with a Japanese garden landscape (like teahouses). There are less steps involved here, so more friendly on the limbs for the elderly. I think what is fantastic about both sites, and the park in general, is that it’s so huge, and there wasn’t any crowd at all on the weekday. Plenty of school groups were here on tour, but there was just so much room to go around. Those two areas took up almost the entire day (at slow, enjoyable pace), so I did not see if there were other areas with autumn leaves. The concentration of leaves, in combination with the surrounding landscape, does really let the beauty of autumn shine through, and I highly recommend those two spots if you are short on time.

Do note that there are not much food options within the park grounds; you’d have to exit the park grounds and head to the nearby La-la Port Expocity. No worries though, just keep your ticket and to re-enter the park. The map (available in pdf on their website, or at the park entrance) does indicate plenty of cherry blossom viewing spots, so I would imagine the park would be fantastic during Hanami season.

This is a huge park so prepare to walk a lot. When you go from Center Gate, you straight can see the front of the Tower of Sun. Since I go in December, there's not many flowers to see, but insides have some small museums with free entrance, we still have fun in there.

This large park in northern Osaka hosts a variety of events throughout the year. The flower garden, which can be enjoyed in all four seasons, is also highly recommended.

I'm not normally one to get excited by strolling in the gardens, but this was actually quite good fun. The autumn colours especially made it enjoyable, and the fresh air and blue skies helped.

The highlight was the Sun God statue you encounter when you come in - I quite like that sort of sculpture but it may not be everyones taste.

Note, I got in to the park for free on the day I visited. Not sure why. I don't know what entry normally is, but that may have changed my opinion a bit - but still, if you enjoy a stroll in parks and gardens, this will be fun.

We went today for red maple leaves. There is only very small number of red leafy trees. There is a minute waterfall. The only attraction for us is the onsen at west gate. Lunch was good. Lalaport is just a mall. Not worth going.

On a late Autumn day, we visited the park, strolled in it, and visited the cosmos field. As I am a member of JAF, I've got a discount.

I went to the place on 6 Apr 19(Sat).It was Sat so there were lots of ppl going to the park.I have to queue 20mins to get into the park.The weather was very warm that day and i was lucky to see the fully blossom sakura trees.Many Japanese picnic or camping under the Sakura trees.There were also tulips in the park.I guess it will be really beautiful when the tulips are fully blossom on May.The park is about one hr from central of Osaka if u are taking the train.Not very near to city but definitely a must to visit place during cherry blossoms season.Entrance fee is only 250yen.

We came here perfect time for the cherry blossoms festival. There is entrance fee to the park that features Tower of the Sun. Stroll around the park to see vast of blossoms. You can also take boat ride. It was cold during my visit here but worth it.
