Intex Osaka

This photos in this post will be presented backwards from how I took them – I was too excited/nervous to take any on the way in, so I took a bunch on the way out.

Intex Osaka is a complex of buildings held on a little island outside of Osaka city – the train actually goes underwater to reach it. The land itself is quite pretty and reminds me of Makuhari city in Chiba prefecture: lots of trees and other greenery and plenty of space.

When I looked up Intex Osaka online beforehand, I wasn’t completely sure what exit I should take, but upon exiting the walkway and going down the stairs, I saw this sign. I instantly felt much better :wink:

Another raised (but not covered this time) walkway over a different road. You can see bits of Intex buildings behind the tree on the right side of the photo.

These are some Intex buildings – there was actually a sign on one of them that listed the building number and said “Intex Osaka” but I didn’t manage to capture it even though I was sure I had >< Intex Osaka Aug 1st 2010

The whole area around it was paved with stones and looked rather empty

Tall buildings, but not packed in like they were in the city, or in Tokyo. Lots of space to see the gorgeous blue sky~ :hare:

Big TV in the main gate area displaying info on the Home Town Dollpa (that has just finished, as you can see by the clock below it… XD;)

Randomly, Intex had a set of old carillon bells, given as a good-will gift from a city in Belgium, on display.

This was of interest to me, of course, because I was in Japan to attend the 14th International Handbell Symposium

…something that you’ll quickly come to realize about me is I love taking pictures of landscapes and buildings :hee:

Intex Osaka Aug 1st 2010
as you can see (still looking back at the gate) the whole area was open-air. since it was summer, that was quite nice~ :csharo: I imagine in the winter people might prefer it to be a bit more closed off… XD;

Heading towards building 4, where the Dollpa was held

One more look back at the entrance area

And here’s what the inside of building 4 looked like, if you don’t remember. Taken from the left side of the room facing right (the entrance, from this photo, is forwards and off to the right).

It was pretty large, and I was pleasantly surprised to find it properly climate-controlled.
