The park can be roughly divided into an activity area where you can enjoy sports and other activities, a community area lined with fashionable restaurants, a marché area where local products are on display, and a glamping area that combines a resort hotel and camping, where you can stay overnight. It also overlooks Kansai International Airport, so you can have fun with a beautiful view.

A long-established sake manufacturer founded in 1716. Even in this age of mechanization, they still make sake by hand. Naniwa has a well-established reputation, and has won gold medals five times at the Annual Japan Sake Awards. There are tours of the brewery building, which is a Registered Tangible Cultural Property much-loved by locals as a remnant of traditional culture.
