Osaka Castle Keep4.5

This castle was originally built in 1583 for Toyotomi Hideyoshi as a symbol of unification of Japan and was the largest castle at the time.

Osaka castle is one of the biggest and well-known castles in Japan. It sits on the hill of "houenzaka" and attracts so many visitors from all over the world because of its magnificent size and beauty. The inside of the main tower has been completely renovated and turned into a museum where historically valuable items are exhibited. You can learn the history of the castle and appreciate its presence. During the cherry blossom season(usually early April), you can see the castle from the osakajou park(Osaka castle park) where over 200 cherry trees are in full blossom.

Osaka castle was the impregnable fortress, but surrendered to the Tokugawa Shogunate. The various miniature models and documents on dislay inside the castle tower serve to help us understand how suplended and gigantic the castle was.

Osaka Castle can be said we are the pride of the people of Osaka.
Hideyoshi was born in poor farmers after the unification of the world, built in Osaka was the largest castle is Osaka Castle.
Now you can visit the Castle Tower although new, but we can feel the Osaka Castle has a long history.
If you're not interested in Osaka's history is not a problem.
Osaka city as a whole has now become a big Park, with peach and plum Grove, there are a lot of cherry blossom trees.
Walk in the Park is very nice!

大阪城可以说我们大阪人的骄傲。
出生于贫穷农民家的丰臣秀吉统一天下后,在大阪建的当时规模最大的城堡,就是大阪城。
现在可以参观的天守阁虽然后来重新建的,但是我们可以感觉到大阪城的悠久历史。
如果你对大阪的历史没有兴趣也没问题。
整个大阪城现在已成为一个很大的公园,里面拥有桃花园和梅花林,还有好多颗樱花树。
走走公园里也很舒服!
