Osaka City Central Public Hall

大阪市中央公会堂

A symbol of the knowledge, culture, and history of Osaka, construction on Osaka City Central Public Hall began in 1911 with a one million yen donation in building funds from Einosuke Iwamoto, with the hall opening in 1918. Brick reinforced with steel beams in construction, with three floors above ground and one basement level, the architecture of this extravagant building applies the Neo-Renaissance style as its basic tone while also presenting majestic baroque touches. In addition to concerts by celebrated orchestras from around the world, the hall has also played host to lectures by historical figures such as Helen Keller. The building was registered a national Important Cultural Property in 2002.

    Grand building

    A grand building near Yodoyabashi building, next to a river. Morning is a good time to take photographs. Walk around the area to see the City Hall and High & District Court buildings as well. more

    Beautiful architecture conference site

    The City Hall is even more impressive inside, with a plush main auditorium, and vaulted painted ceilings, wall paintings and stained glass windows. Very nice place to have a conference. more

    Market in front

    It is a beautiful old building by the river and the afternoon I visited the roads had been closed and market stalls set up. It does seem a bit incongrous among the skyscrapers. more
