Osaka Castle is the very first stop that we went when we reached Japan. It’s really simple to find, and with 5 minutes walk, we can see the very beautiful white building – Osaka Castle.
I and Angela are not history fans so we planned not to visit the museum within Osaka Castle. However, with our Osaka Amazing Pass, we are able to enter free of charge. Thus we ended heading in, and I am happy that we did, as the view from above is impressive.
The park is huge so expect that the walk from Sakuramon Gate (which is South of Osaka Castle) to Yamazatomon Gate (which is North of Osaka Castle) to take approximately 15 minutes (a full walk around the entire castle grounds can take 30-45 minutes!).
