Wonderful Castle Museum

Amazing architecture and gardens. Peaceful place to walk, picnic and explore. Actual travel occurred in 2019 but that option was not available to select. Highly recommend this attraction.

Joggers and birders in a big beautiful park
May 2020
Osaka Castle teems with joggers. Birders flock. Out come the longest lenses in town. The land is a large space carved out in the center of the city. Moats and ramparts, bridges and citadels. The castle is spectacular rain or shine. Other historic monuments fill the spaces. Very active space. Much to explore. A Starbucks, a bakery, a nursery and no fewer than six Lawson's are found on the premises.

Green Respite in the middle of the city

Castle grounds are beautiful. Well tended and wonderful for walking, biking or picnics. We always enjoy a day spent there.

Don't bother with going to the castle, its better from the outside than inside!

Such beautiful gardens
Mar 2020 • Couples
Even though the main castle was shut due to COVID19, the gardens offer plenty to look at and admire. This is quite a large area and you can easily spend a few hours just looking at the gardens. If you go on the right night, they had a light show available that lit up the castle grounds.

We also paid to go up to the viewing deck which also includes a drink of your choice and you can sit and look at the grounds and the castle.
