About Minatomachi River Place
A busy public event space next to the funky Namba Hatch concert hall, the River Place is a scenic place popular in the evening.
Sitting between Namba Station and the Dotonbori Canal, Minatomachi River Place is a public space and shopping area outside of the popular Namba Hatch concert hall.
The Namba Hatch focuses on performances by up-and-coming bands, hosts performances almost every night of the year. The varied styles attract a diverse range of people to the area, and is often busy with public events such as flea markets, musical performances, and other activities.
The area is stunning at night, with the unusual shape of the building lit up, and the river promenade illuminated. The area has a wide range of restaurants and cafes to explore, and it is a popular spot for couples.
