The construction of Osaka Castle (大阪城, Ōsakajō) started in 1583 on the former site of the Ishiyama Honganji Temple, which had been destroyed by Oda Nobunaga thirteen years earlier. Toyotomi Hideyoshi intended the castle to become the center of a new, unified Japan under Toyotomi rule. It was the largest castle at the time.However, a few years after Hideyoshi's death, Tokugawa troops attacked and destroyed the castle and terminated the Toyotomi lineage in 1615. Osaka Castle was rebuilt by Tokugawa Hidetada in the 1620s, but its main castle tower was struck by lightening in 1665 and burnt down.
When I visited Osaka a few years ago, the Osaka Castle Park Tianshou Pavilion was still under renovation and conservation. When I visited in July 2023, I could buy tickets to visit the venue. The history of Toyoson's and Tokugawa's is displayed in the Dashou Pavilion. The eighth floor is the top-floor observation deck, which can enjoy the view of Osaka City in 360 degrees. I visited early that day, I didn't have to queue up to buy tickets. When I was ready to leave, there were tour groups after groups. If you are free, it is recommended to go early to save queue time.
