Osaka Castle Park is a nice greenspace in the middle of Osaka's concrete jungle. We were hoping to visit the Castle but arrived too late for entry. However, a walk around parts of the park was quite nice with a number of people enjoying the park. Walking around some of the outside parts of the park was architecturally interesting with... More

A must visit place if you are in Tokyo. Though we need to climb many steps but it is worth the trip.

This castle was really great! It took us a little while to find it because we took the subway and got kind of lost, but we got there in the end. The garden around the castle is surrounded by a moat and I liked how it was kind of secluded. The castle is on many floors and on each floor... More

Great view of the city, this is a must see in Osaka. The castle itself is fairly renovated inside and there are elevators to the top. Worth a trip, but can get crowded during the cherry blossom season

We arrived at 4.30pm and could not get to go inside disappointed! Outside nothing much to do, a souvenir shop and the gardens but nothing fantastic,

I absolutely enjoyed visiting Osaka Castle Park. Osaka castle is gorgeous, and although it was re-created, I still felt like it embodied traditional Japanese architecture. The museum inside was pleasant to explore, and the plum blossoms blooming outside made the whole day really special!

Be prepared to climb and walk! The grounds are surprisingly shabby for a 'park in the city'. Find the right flight of steps and up you go.. once on the ground, Osaka Castle makes nice photo background...
