屋上 okujou—up on the roof

Here’s a little park in the heart of Osaka, where I sometimes sit and have lunch in the sunshine. Can you guess where it is?

There’s even a small shrine, with fox guardians.

Well, as alert readers will have guessed from the title of this post, this little haven is actually on the roof of the 8-storey building where I work.

Sitting up here on a sunny day, it’s easy to forget you are high above the busy streets of the city.

Looking down into Midosuji Avenue. The gingko trees lining the avenue are still beautiful in their autumn yellow, although some are now starting to lose their leaves.
