I visited Eigamura back in 2013 but didnt have so much of a fantastic time, mostly due to the weather and time constraints. Recently I returned with J and we spent about 5 hours enjoying the park.
Tennoji zoo has a reputation for being one of the worst kept and depressing zoos in Japan. It’s rating on TripAdvisor and comments left by visitors are not complimentary. With that and it being closed on Mondays Id never been before. A new evening winter light up just started in the park nearby as part of Osaka Castles 400th year celebrations. So we decided to finally go.
