Really one of the most amazing places in Japan. Is a huge place fill with public green areas where you can play, have a picnic, paint, listen to music, or relax. At the end of February your can see the Plumb flowers and in April the cherry blossom. The castle is really beautiful inside and outside. You can spend the hole day here in the parks, museums and restaurants. There is even a light show at night. Really a place to visit when you are in Japan.

Decent for a quick visit. Not that enjoyable as the inside of the castle is nothing like the original. The new restaurants near by have been a great new way to attract more visitors I believe. Fot me the main attraction is the surrounding park.

One of the great castle of Japan! Standing in the middle of the City. I’ve been here three times and the experience the first time I went here were amazing because it’s time for the sakura. It’s very crowded but you can still have space during cherry blossom.

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.
