Maido! Osaka EXPO Program Water Metropolis Osaka Sustainable Cruise

Osaka grew into an economic and cultural powerhouse thanks to its waterways. The city developed around the Water Corridor, a rare rectangular formation of waterways. The history of the City of Water dates back to the Asuka Period, when Osaka traded with the continent and other countries. In modern times, the people of Osaka have made an effort to return to lives closely intertwined with the rivers by installing boat piers, symbolic riverside spaces, and lighting on the embankments and supports. A cruise is the best way to rediscover the charms of the City of Water!
