Osaka Castle

osaka_castle

Osaka Castle is a recently rebuilt castle in central Osaka.  There is a large park surrounding the complex, plus a historical museum. Because of it was built recently, the innards contain features such as elevator access, so it’s not the most stunning castle in Japan, but still worth a visit if you have time.
