The most famous building is Tenshukaku in Osaka Castle Park. It has several small gardens and courtyards and a moat outside. The river divides the park and the urban area. You can watch interesting folk performance in the small square nearby. An artificial hill southwest is the best angle to view Tenshukaku.
Osaka Castle is the home of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, alias "Golden City" or "Kincheng", and Nagoya Castle and Kumamoto Castle are the three famous cities in Japan's history.

Osaka, Osaka City Park, Japan
early summer, the environment is fresh and green. How romantic is it more than a month ago? Imagine!
Osaka Castle Park is free, but Shoushouge charges. The Shouge is a large castle built during the Warring States Period in Japan. It is a military-related building and watchtower. At the same time, it is also the place where the city owner lives.
It's great for walking, taking pictures, and there are many people running, playing, camping and small group activities every day.
When I came to Osaka, I felt that I should visit Osaka Castle! My mentality may be like the foreign tourists coming to Beijing and want to see the Forbidden City! It feels like an important landmark of a city and has a very important cultural significance.
Osaka Castle and Nagoya Castle and Kumamoto Castle are three cities in Japan's history, alias "Golden City" or "Kincheng". It was the home of Toyotomi Hideyoshi at the earliest. Later, after Tokugawa Ieyasu attacked it, it became a stronghold of the Tokugawa shogunate. In short, it was a very important place in Japanese history.
When it was the Second World War, this was the attacking position that the US military aimed at. The original castle was almost destroyed by artillery. Now, the Osaka City we saw was later rebuilt by the private fund. It is interesting that it is not faithful. Copying the Toyotomi or Tokugawa era, basically based on the white paint style of the Tokugawa era, but the top layer reproduces the black lacquer gold style of the Toyotomi era, which is a mix and match! The scenery of Osaka Castle Park near
Ten Shoucheng is very beautiful, especially in the autumn, red, yellow, green, colorful, like a fairy tale.
Recommended tour time: 2 hours
