"Nanko" means South Port and it is a part of Osaka Harbor made of reclaimed land.
I had a nice morning run there this morning.
I found my first cherry tree with reasonable amount of flowers - the first of this season.
There was a nice Bird Sanctuary, but unfortunately, its gate was closed. I could only peek in through small windows at the north end. It was a very peaceful place.
This strange building is a part of Osaka MariTime Museum. It is actually connected to the entrance through an underwater tunnel.
The red truss bridge is Minato Ohashi (Great Harbor Bridge) - its span is 510 m and the total length is 980 m long.
Very close from my hotel was a harbor with a sailboat and a ferry.
