Northern Osaka Area
- Northern Osaka Area
Northern Osaka, and MICE events surrounded by greenery.
Known as the "Hokusetsu" area, the northern region of Osaka prefecture is well integrated with nature, with parks and greenery blending into the rolling mountins. The area is centered by Senri-Chuo Station, a transportation hub with subway access to major areas in Osaka City, and direct access to Osaka Itami Airport. Senri New Town is rich in greenery and has sightseeing spots such as the symbolic Tower of the Sun and Expo'70 Commemorative Park, making it ideal for after-event sightseeing.
Senri-Chuo Station in the center of the Northern Osaka Area features convenient access to Shin-Osaka, Umeda, and Namba on the same train line, each of which are 15, 20, and 30 minutes away, respectively. Osaka-Itami Airport is only 12 minutes away by monorail, and with additional highway access, the Northern Osaka Area is defined by its ease of access.
Hokusetsu holds the main venues of the Senri Life Science Center and the Senri Hankyu Hotel. Both within walking distance of Senri-Chuo Station, these facilities are home to many international and academic conferences.
Senri Life Science Center
The Northern Osaka Area’s most defining feature is its greenery. Over 20% of the 1,160 hectare Senri New Town, the very first among Japan’s “New Town” public housing initiatives, is public parks and green space. Expo ’70 Commemorative Park, home of the famous Tower of the Sun, and Hattori Ryokuchi Park receive many visitors.
Complexes such as the Expo City shopping park provide after-convention entertainment. For event organizers who want to step away from the bustle of the city and truly focus on their event, the Northern Osaka Area is a perfect destination.
