Osaka Castle Japan

Osaka Castle

Hot! Bring water and a hat.

The grounds around the castle are pretty extensive, so be ready to walk.

  • Best picture spot – to the left and by the pond. 1st pic below.
  • A lot of the area is concrete. These bare areas were once barracks.
  • The inside of the castle is a museum. Completely modernized with AC and an elevator.
  • Skip the elevator and walk the stairs. There is a long line for the elevator and goes directly to the 5th floor.
  • No pictures allowed.
  • To the right of the castle, is a strangely modern-looking castle. There are shops and also a coffee house within.
  • Grounds are free to explore
  • Museum 600 yen
