“The Osaka Castle Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

It is about a 20 minutes walk from subway station (Nagahoribashi Station, Nagahori Tsurumi-ryokuchi Line) to Osaka Castle Park, there are a lot of trees along the walkway so it is a nice short walk to the park.
There is a fee (600 Yen) if you want to enter into the museum and you get very good view from the top of the museum overseeing the metropolitan areas of Osaka city, worth paying this ^_^ ~

“Unkempt park not worth the time”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We were bitterly disappointed by the unkempt state of the park. Huge piles of litter tipped into the moats. Overgrown with weeds and filth. Totally disgusting! Plum and peach gardens were also over grown with weeds. What a sorry state of affairs for a major tourist attraction in the centre of the city. What a shame it has been allowed to decline so badly.
