Additional Information

Introduction

The Main Tower of Osaka Castle is a key landmark building of Osaka that was built in 1583 and is also known as "Hideyoshi Castle". The castle interior has now been transformed into a museum that provides information on Toyotomi Hideyoshi and the castle's history, while the top floor offers great views over Osaka. The castle is built on an elevated platform and features white walls with green tiles, while the end of each flying eave is adorned with a magnificent tiger or shachi formed out of gold foil . Every spring and autumn, the ancient charm of the castle is ever more prominent against the cherry blossoms or red maple leaves.
