With Osaka Castle as a backdrop, a dazzling LED light up centers around the large, waterfront area. The display looks back on the Meiji Restoration that gave birth to modern Japan 150 years ago. Get lost in the Japanese streets of the 1860s with Japan’s first “Japanese Maze,” a 30-meter-long history book in lights, and more. Take a journey of discovery through history, guided by lights and sound.
