The entry is free for students provided that you have a valid student card from Japanese University (Foreign University Student Card won't work).
As far as the castle is concerned, the view from roof top is fabulous, and if you history lover then castle provides enough historical information for you. Overall, it's best place for you to visit and no doubt one of the main attractions of Osaka.

Been here in autumn and the weather is so good to be missed. The place is so calm when I visited as not many people around. If you visited Osaka, this castle is a must. You don’t need to go inside the castle if you don’t wanna spend money. Outside the castle is still good.

Famous castle in Osaka. The area is very spacious with beautiful views. we can see beautiful view of Osaka city from the top floor of the castle. The garden around the castle is cool and full of trees.

It's a beautiful castle. Must visit place in Osaka. Its a huge place with garden. The view from top of castle is good. The life story video about the warrior who built the castle is interesting.

A must in Japan, a nice garden, open enough enough to dilute the tourist and a great view of this beautiful castle.
From outside it is outstanding. Inside it is more like a museum. To complement the experience it is recommended to visit Matsumoto castle, another must in Japan.
