Description

If you’re in the Kansai region of Japan, a trip to Osaka Castle is an experience you can’t afford to miss — especially if you’re a first-time visitor! An emblem of wealth and power, Osaka Castle has stood since the time of famed general Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who helped stir the beginnings of a unified Japan. The castle’s majestically beautiful exterior may be traditional, but inside, it’s been refurbished for modern times to house a museum. Head inside to visit Osaka Castle Museum, where a large variety of over 10,000 artifacts are on display to shine light on Osaka’s intriguing history. The extensive collection includes armor and weaponry, art, and depictions of famous battles. You’ll learn about not only the region’s roots, but also Osaka’s prominent role in Japan’s interesting and rich past. Besides its historical significance, Osaka Castle is also a beautiful testament to traditional Japanese architecture. The castle evokes a sense of balance and refinement that’s pleasing to look at — no wonder this beloved landmark is so often photographed! So striking is this castle that the Japanese government recognized it as a valuable structure, designating it a Tangible Cultural Property in 1997. Located amid a spacious park filled with greenery, Osaka Castle is worth a sight both on the inside and the outside, and it provides precious respite right in the heart of Osaka. In spring, it makes for the perfect spot for ‘hanami’ (cherry blossom viewing)! Don’t miss your chance for a glimpse into Japanese history and culture — book your tickets to Osaka Castle now!
