I went there without knowing that the castle close at around 5pm. Luckily found a shuttle car that is heading to the castle (or it would have been a very long walk!). Went there on autumn, so the view of the tree leafs falling along the road is really romantic and lovely. I did not expect much, but I surely... More

The castle is beautiful and has a very detailed museum inside. You can climb to the top for some great views of the city.

The best way to go the Osaka Castle is by using subway "Morinomiya" station Operation hours starts from 09.00-17.00 hrs. Admission fee is 600 yen but if you have an Osaka Amazing Pass is FREE !!

We've been to Osaka castle before so this time we went back specifically to see the live show called Sengoku the Real. Although it's presented by Universal Studios, it seems to me they haven't marketed it to foreign audiences as much as they could have. For those who are fans of Sengoku stories (I.e. Romanticised history of samurais and warriors)... More

True it's been renovated and rebuilt so many times but I don't think a trip to Osaka is complete without going to Osaka Castle. To throught the tour and learn Japan's history. Be sure to ask for an automated guided tour, it's free. They'll provide an english version that explains most of the exhibits. Also don't forget to get your... More

You need to walk and see to appreciate the Castle in Osaka. Its isolated and protected but yet can see the entire city from the top of the Castle.

I go to Osakajo from Dotonbori on food it takes for 1 and half an hour. if you use google mobile map you have to prepare extra mobile battery and your favorite music. Enjoy walking new place without others....if you will be tired to get on subway during walking to osakajo.
