For Dotonbori River or the river representing Osaka, the walking trail has been improved as part of a project to regenerate “the lagoon city of Osaka,” by which people can feel familiar with water. By improving the flood gates that have the functions of water purification, tide prevention, and lockage, waterfront environmental improvement in the peripheral areas has been achieved.
