On Saturday, January 18, 2020, a new complex, TUGBOAT_TAISHO, opened in Taisho, Osaka, and as soon as COVID-19 settles down and comes to Osaka, why not visit the new spot that only the “Water City of Osaka” can offer? So…check, check, check for information at home now!
What is TUGBOAT_TAISHO?
The newly opened TUGBOAT_TAISHO is located along the Shirinashi River and consists of three areas. The first was a food hall and live space, and the second was opened in the spring with a liner to “Universal Studios Japan” and a manufacturing workshop area. (Due to COVID-19, this one is not open yet.) In summer, Japan’s first “hotel floating on the river” will open as its third installment, making it the only spot in the “water city of Osaka”.
Check out the first store to open!
On the first floor of the first area opened this time, you can enjoy 10 restaurants and a live space, including the pizzeria “PEZZERIA DA DOTS” where you can enjoy authentic Neapolitan pizza carefully baked one by one, and the bakery café “MONDIAL KAFFEE 328 TUGBOAT” which is baked every morning in the store’s workshop.
In addition, the beloved bar “SUNSET2117”, which has been in business for 14 years in Kawabe, Taisho-ku, has moved to the second floor and opened three more bars and snacks, including the Okinawan sakaba “Kijimuna-no-mori”. It’s a food hall where you can enjoy a variety of foods, so when the liner from Universal Studios opens, you might want to come and enjoy the food here!
By the time you come to Japan for your trip, the whole area should be open! You’ll want to consider this new spot on your itinerary.
