Osaka Castle

This Castle is a beautiful symbol of Osaka and one of the greatest castles in Japan. I personally spent many hours in the evening relaxing in the park. The castle was built in 1583 by the order of Hideyoshi Toyotomi, the one of the most famous unifying warlords of Japanese history. The park surrounding the castle is especially popular to visit during cherry blossom season. Don’t forget your camera!


One of Osaka’s most touristic neighbourhood is Dotonbori. This area is has many famous shop displays, such as Glico Running Man, along with flashy neon lights at night attract millions of visitors. If you are looking for something to eat out, there are many wonderful restaurants to choose from.
