What people are saying:

Osaka's historic Osaka Castle, along with Nagoya and Kumamoto, was one of the three great Japanese cities. Hideyoshi Toyotomi was defeated by Ieyasu Tokugawa, and his Osaka Castle was destroyed. It was later built. It is also 400 years old. Tenshu Pavilion is also a major historical site in Japan. It is a must-see attraction in Japan. It is quite good.

The castle is built on an elevated platform and features white walls with green tiles, while the end of each flying eave is adorned with a magnificent tiger or shachi formed out of gold foil . Every spring and autumn, the ancient charm of the castle is ever more prominent against the cherry blossoms or red maple leaves.
