Arguably Osaka’s most prominent landmark — the majestic Osaka Castle. This impressive historical site is located within a huge urban park in the heart of Osaka city. Every year, as winter melts into spring, beautiful plum and cherry trees blossoms flower in the park’s gardens turning the grounds into a vibrant wonderland. It was really an awe-inspiring sight! 🌸
There are a lot of activities you can do in the park area without spending any dollar — from running to cycling, or having a picnic with the incredible view of Osaka Castle. You can also see the skyscrapers of Osaka on the other side of the park. While you’re here, you can also draw an “omikuji” and try your luck! 🙏🏻
When I previously went to Osaka Castle, I didn't go to Osaka Castles Park because we were running out of time. It was great to finally go around the park this time and just chill, buy some souvenirs, and check out the buildings around. Going around the park is actually free, but if you want to enter the main castle tower, you have to pay ¥600 at the auto-payment machine.
A relatively magnificent ancient city, divided into the outer city river and the inner city river.
This time the local tour guide gave the most detailed and hard-working one. It also experienced the baptism of World War II.
American bombs also put Osaka Castle exploded all over. The city walls built by more than 100 tons of stones in Osaka
Castle were also bombarded by artillery, and the traces of repair were obvious.
