That’s it for the article about evening view in Nakanoshima area as part of Day 1.

Speaking of light-up in Nakanoshima, “Osaka Hikari-Renaissance” along with “Mido-suji Illumination” was popular as seasonal tradition in winter. If I have another chance to visit Osaka, I would like to watch it in winter 🙂

In the next article, I will write about Osaka Castle as part of Day 2.
