Create an itinerary including Osaka Castle Park
Stroll around Osaka Castle Park to appreciate the vast urban park's imposing stone walls and moats--remnants of the military temple complex they once protected. In addition to an onsite castle, the park includes a number of historic gates and storehouses, as well as sports facilities, a concert hall, and forested areas. The vibrant foliage changes colors with the seasons, and in the spring, over 600 blooming cherry blossom trees cover the grounds with their soft pink petals.

  • …with views of the castle and lots of different gates and walls all over. Really big too so it never felt busy apart from right next to the castle.

  • One not to be missed, for all family as well as friends especially if Fuji is erupting again as now. We visited 2019 although I'd go back tomorrow. I'd go back to Keio Plaza Hotel in Tokyo, any...

  • Osaka Castle Park is one of the top places to visit in Osaka!!! The park itself is very large and you can have a good walk walking through it. There is lots of beautiful nature to enjoy and the Sakura in spring is simply beautiful, especially near the East moat area. The castle itself is also very picturesque. I highly recommend visiting this par if you are in Osaka!!!
  • Visited this magnificent castle during my visit to Osaka and I must confess that this castle have a huge historical memory that showcases one of Japanese rich cultural heritage to the world at large. The castle was newly innovated and has multiple floors for tourists to visit. Each of the floor have a lot of historical artifacts on the display for anyone visiting the castle to view. The staff working in this place are very helpful and the amount to pay to visit the castle is only 600JPY which is affordable. I would strongly recommend anyone visiting Osaka to take a trip to this beautiful castle because of it’s historical significance and location.
