As we were about to leave Osaka, I hopped in a cab and did a quick trip to Osaka Castle. Really awe-inspiring sight. I climbed all the stairs and had a look around the interior and was impressed with the history and story-telling in the castle. Once on the top level I took in the views of Osaka. I had a really good, quick experience. If you want to hit a castle in Japan and have limited time, I highly recommend this one.

Stunning view of the castle that can be seen from a far! The castle is surrounded by lake or mout, which is quite impressive and traditional use by old ancient empire. There is an entrance fee to get inside the castle., which we opted out. For us walking along the park is great enough experience.

The landmark in the Autumn is so great! Red and yellow leaves are everywhere. Clean atmosphere. Hope to have chances to comeback again!

I was expecting to see the grand hall where the emperor is seated and thousands of soldiers are seated on the floor. I was very disappointed. It's only $5 or $6 to go in to see pictures and videos of the old, floor after floor. You don't get to see the grand hall because it is walled off or closed to traffic.

This review is on Osaka Castle Illuminage (Limited Event), not on the main Osaka Castle (though I've been to the castle during the day time as well). Illuminage is really beautiful so I thought to share some photos with Osaka Castle in the backdrop. I hope there will be similar events in the future.
