The Banpaku-koen Park located on the east side of the Senriyama Hills in the central north part of Osaka is the site where Expo Osaka was held in 1970. Osaka Monorail runs through this 264 hectare wide park from east to west.

On the north side of the monorail, there are Japanese gardens with teahouses such as Senri-an and Banri-an, and a natural cultural garden where you can enjoy seasonal flowers.
