The park surrounding the castle is beautiful. If you have no interest in part of the history, you can skip paying the fees to go in as it's only exhibitions and some parts are translated to english. However, the view at the top is amazing.

It is one of the top attractions in Osaka. And the castle is stunning. You will need at least half a day.

The visit to the castle is a must for any visit to Osaka. The castle grounds provide numerous photo opportunities for both locals and tourists alike. It’s worth the ticket price to enter the castle. Good visit!

Was there to see the cherry blossoms. When I was in Osaka, the flowers were already 'off peak' but that did not really matter, still a few blossoming sakura trees to keep me happy.

Beautiful and well manicured, like all parks in Japan. We were lucky to walk and enjoy it during the cherry blossom season. Time well spent.
