We made sure we visited Osaka Castle because this is a must visit. The castle and the park comprised of a very large area so we rode the shuttle to experience the whole place. Cherry blossom was at its peak so many visitors doing hanami

Was a beautiful day so went looking for green space and a view. Most people suggest walking the grounds for free is fine vs paying admittance to castle. Close to metro stops. Less a cultural experience then immersion in people and Osaka. It is quite...More

Get your walking shoes ready because the castle is very far from the nearest train stop. Alight from Morinomiya station to get to the castle quicker (but there is a steep flight of stairs) or alight from Tanimachiyonchome station to get through the Otemon gate...More

This park has Osaka Castle and the walls, Japanese gardens, concert halls, event plazas, baseball stadiums, etc. and has a very large site. There are five nearest stations, but each takes about 20 minutes on foot. Tourists visit Osaka Castle and local people visit parks...More

The beautiful sight of traditional kingdom building is contrast with the moderns surrounded but the surroundings seemed too commercialized. Osaka Castle is a highlight for most visitors to Osaka. Since it's on the travel itinerary, do expect crowds. I went at the end of the...More

You can use trains (rail or subway), but the closest one is by city bus. The bus stop is more closer to the main entrance area then train station. You can stop at Banbacho bus stop.
Is the park open to the public in the evening? I mean the area directly around the castle? I want to take some evening photos. Thanks.

Checkout the Osaka Castle web site. The area surrounding the castle is a city park and there are plenty of places for great photos. I assume the gates to the inner castle area close at some point. The web site states the... More
