    u will see travel books introducing this place

    ** but there is really nothing to see here besides sakura **

    ** there are so many such kind of similar castles in japan **

    Unique Suggestions: during spring time this place will attracts crowds to come for the sakura
    there are lots of them around the big garden and beautiful

    ** go during spring time.... to see sakura... **
    but its gonna be crowded ... vvv crowded .... more pple than flowers....

    NOT A CASTLE ANYMORE IN THE INSIDE

    by heywinks Updated Dec 11, 2002

    Osaka Castle doesn`t look so bad on the outside but if you want to visit a "REAL" castle that has a similar/same interior as the original, you will be greatly disappointed when you visit this castle. The inside has been converted into a museum that talks about the history of Osaka Castle & Osaka. Sure, it`s interesting, but you don`t feel like you are in a castle. It`s too modern inside & there`s not historical feel to it.

    Unique Suggestions: If you have to go, at least walk all around on the castle grounds. Good exercise & you can see carp fish in the moat.

    Fun Alternatives: If you want a real castle feel, visit Himeji Castle, a 1 hr train ride from Osaka. It`s more beautiful, inside & out.

    Osaka castle on the INSIDE. Inside it feels like a library/museum/hotel lobby. Outside it is pretty.
