a Great Park and a beautiful castle which is used as a small museam. You can climb to the top or take the lift if you have walking difficulties. There are stalls where you can eat and drink.

What a pleasant park. We did not expect to see such a beautiful park in Osaka. The castle is nice to look at and if you go inside you'll have a view of Osaka. Easily accessible by subway.

I'm definitely glad that I went to see this castle. I will say that most of the castles look the same-ish, but they all have something unique about them. Osaka castle is very new & very touristy. You can take the elevator to the 5th floor & the stairs the rest of the way (to the 8th floor) or you can take the stairs the entire way. You have to take the stairs down, and that's when you can visit the other floors (the suggested course). I ended up walking around the entire grounds (not on purpose, I got a little lost looking for the garden) and it took a loooooong time, but it was a beautiful site. Overall, I would definitely visit again, it's a beautiful area, and a must-see! I think the fee is 600 yen ($6).

One of the cultural spots you must see in Osaka. The park is also great for promenading and jogging early in the morning.

Ophs I wrote about the castle in the park one however it is beautiful. The park is amazing. Huge, beautiful, green, pretty. Get place for a jog but maybe not in the heat of summer!
