Beautiful reconstructed castle. Dress up photo area was fun, and they take photos on your phone/camera in case you don’t want to purchase the souvenir photo. Going early in the morning allowed for unobstructed photos.

We went went inside the castle which wasn't worth our time or money. There's several boring signs and nice view from the top of the castle, but ultimately this attraction is best viewed from outside. Just stroll the park and admire at the castle from outside.

Probably one of the biggest attractions of Osaka is Osaka Castle. You can pose with a samurai outside the castle while waiting in line to pay 600 Yen ($5.50) to tour around the 8-floored building built in the 1580’s by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a warlord. Visiting hours are from 9-17:00 but won’t allow entrance after 16:30. While the views from the top floor of the castle are amazing, if you want to save your money, head to the left of the castle for views of Osaka Park, the city, and Osaka Castle. Park benches here make for a ‘winning’ picnic spot.

It's always crowded and puts on damper on its majesty, but it's absolutely worth braving the crowds to see the castle and the grounds.

A great place to learn about history of Japan. Love the interactive exhibition with projection techniques. They also hold Hanami festival there.

Beautiful reconstructed castle and park. If you love Sakura, Mid and April is a beautiful time to visit.

The historical site and a must visit in Osaka, Japan. Rich stories and beautiful with the surrounding Cherry Blossoms in Spring.

We walked to the castle from train station, it's about 10 minutes walk. There is a park around the castle with lots of food trucks and food stands. You can buy the ticket to go to the top of castle for the view of Osaka.

This place is an interesting walking museum, you start at the top and work your way down the stairs to all the history of the war lords of Osaka. And at the end you can wear the awesome samurai gear or geisha gear to take a photo!

Surprisingly disappointing. It looks great on the outside, don't get me wrong, but once you're inside, it's a pretty ho hum museum and you forget that you're in a castle. Until you get to the observation deck. The views are decent up there, but there's no much enthusiasm in the exhibit within. It's a little dated I guess is what I"m saying. Nonetheless, it is included in the Osaka Day Pass so do get photos there.
