2010年6月23日大阪商工会議所は、大阪城の天守閣と本丸エリアに「歴史テーマパーク」を整備すべきだ、との提言を発表しまた。3D映像などの最新技術を駆使して歴史絵巻を体験できる空間を演出し、戦国・江戸時代の風情が感じられる町並みを再現することで海外から観光客を呼び込むことができるとの考えです。なんとも楽しそうな響きですね。実現すると海外からに限らず、大河ドラマ人気により国内他府県からの観光客にも期待できるのではないでしょうか。スミス英会話の外国人講師たちも、今から楽しみのようです。

Lesson 25: Osaka Castle Theme Park / VIDEO Script, Questions and Answers

Script:

Chiharu:
Al, what do you think about the article on the Asahi Shimbun site about the Osaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry floating a plan to transform the Osaka Castle into a theme park?

Al:
What’s that? A theme park? Now there’s a fun idea!

Chiharu:
Yeah, they want to recreate a historic cityscape around the castle to give visitors a chance to experience what it was like to live in Osaka in the 16th century.

Al:
I really like the idea. It could help Osaka to draw a lot of tourists and maybe even some from overseas. Together with USJ, Osaka could become an interesting tourist spot for foreign tourists. Can you think of some ways to create a cool ambience in the park and really make it into a tourism magnet?

Chiharu:
Well they must have some actors in traditional garb to recreate the townsfolk and the ruler Hideyoshi Toyotomi. And it must have a few thrill rides perhaps or some Rakugo in English.

Al:
Absolutely! Maybe the DOTOMBORI splash ride or the Osaka Jo free-fall ride. When the planes to Itami airport pass over, it will present a spectacular view!

Yes, I can’t wait!
