“Tenshiba Park has just been built in the last few years and even people who live in Osaka often dont know about Tenshiba. Tennoji used to be a dangerous and dirty place. But that certainly changed in the last few years. Tenshiba is a calm park with alot of young people and families. If you get there check out the cafe SPOONBILL. The drinks are super refreshing and look great on pictures aswell. My recommendations: Pineapple punch chai latte (but basically everything is good there)”
