Don't miss the group photo opportunity wearing Japanese traditional clothes in front of the castle. My family and I had so much fun!

This is the route to the castle, but it would be worth visiting as a destination in its own right. The beauty and peace would be a welcoming pace to relax with a book or sketch pad.

Osaka park is very beautiful and nice place for small walk. With accumulation of all the people mostly on the castle territory, park gives you very refreshing feeling.

Osaka castle may be famous (well the interior/museum is nothing really special) BUT the park is a must. Walking from the metro station C19 up to the castle and around the castle back to the station again is really relaxing while you get to enjoy the castle itself more than when going inside.

Visit a few hours before sunset so you can visit the inside of the castle which is like a museum and walk the park area, grab a bite at the food stands (they sell boiled potatoes in foil that are surprisingly good). Then when the sun goes down watch them light up the castle and take a selfie. Osaka Castle...... More
