| With the coming of Japan's aging society, people
have developed new lifestyles, with a more diverse sense
of value. As this societal change continues, more and
more people people seek to develop a leisure-filled
and rich spirit as well.
The Recreation and Tourism Bureau performs an important
role in making Osaka and its parks replete with greenery
and flowers, as well as developing activities to promote
tourism, culture and sports, which allow our citizens
to better themselves and develop the leisure-filled
and rich spirits they seek.
This Bureau supports policy development for culture,
sports and greenery and maintains the organic connections
between those policies, as well as develops Osaka's
charm through city promotion.
With creative talent taken not only from within Japan
but from foreign countries as well, this Bureau works
to make Osaka a popular place. To that end, we support
projects that work to realize a vibrant society where,
through experiencing culture and greenery and enjoying
everything Osaka has to offer fully, people of every
stage of life can live richly and safely.
