What about SAKUYA KONOHANA KAN
Please check this official website!
The official website describes clearly what kind of facility it is, and I quote from the introduction.
The Sakuya Konohana Kan conservatory was established by Osaka Municipal Government as a pavilion of the International Garden and Greenery Exposition, Osaka, Japan 1990, held from April 1 to September 30, 1990.
In line with the theme of the exhibition, “Harmonious Co-Existence between People and Greenery,” the conservatory houses wild plants collected from around the world.
This is one of the largest conservatories in Japan, and one of the few conservatories in the world that artificially maintains the climatic and geographical conditions of the regions where the plants grow.
Plants that are the main attractions of the conservatory, such as tropical water lilies and blue poppies, are made to bloom all year round.
There are approximately 15,000 plants of 2,600 species and garden origins on exhibit, which offer direct and hands-on opportunities for visitors to learn about the wondrous nature of our precious planet in depth, while inviting them on a fascinating journey to appreciate the flowers of the world.
In a word, it is a botanical garden in Osaka city.
