What people are saying:

Qingdao flies directly to Osaka. At the end of January, the weather was fine ☀️. The first stop is the Tenshukaku of Osaka Castle, located in the center of Osaka Castle Park. It is a large castle built during the Warring States Period in Japan and served as a castle and watchtower. It is also the residence of the city lord, symbolizing status and power. The park is free, and entering the city is also free, only 600 yen is required to visit the castle tower. There is an observation deck on the top floor of the tower, which can overlook the distant view of Osaka Castle. There is also a history museum with a collection of photos, objects, and materials, which is not bad.
