What people are saying:

Lovely walk from the train station to the castle. Take about 15-20min from station exit to the castle main gate. Entry was ¥600 per adult ticket. Suggest to take the lift from ground floor up to the top first then work your way down each other floor with some osaka history.

    The castle is grand from the outside.
