Osaka Castle Park, Chuo

4.2
#1 of 59 in Parks in Osaka
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.

  • Ōsaka Castle and the park surrounding it are like the gems of the city. It's a lush, green area in the heart of a metropolitan area. The park itself is a nice venue to walk through and explore for fre...  more »
  • It is a park that is crowded with events. It is also close to the train station and is surrounded by many shops. The entrance fee for the castle is 600 yen.

  • We arrived late Saturday morning and the line was incredibly long. So we went into some nearby shops but not into the castle itself. A long walk from Metro so you need to plan your visit. I suspect we...  more »

  • One of my fave place in Osaka. Quite a walk but the experience was awesome. Very informative. We took the train ride and very easy to find the place for as long as you have a reliable navigator. Foods and souvenirs are also reasonable
  • The park is huge with well designed pathways. Lovely view of the castle and the canal. The illusion museum shops offers good selection of souvenirs and food. Didn't actually entered the castle just spent a good few hours strolling in the park. Would be great in cherry blossom season.
  • Osaka Castle is a must go when you are in Osaka else it’s like missing the Great Wall when in Beijing. Although this is not the real thing but the beauty of this place is definitely worth the time and effort. Get the ticket and visit the inside of the castle and learn the history of the castle and the war that hit is. If you like samurai armours .. there are many beautiful pieces in there
  • Simply a must do its a 15 min walk in and 8 stories up but a lift available... Each floor has things to look at and see.. TOP floor amazing views of Osaka.
  • In the evening time with lights is really suggestive..... It's recommended a evening walk around for picture.... And after a dinner inside the other historical building.
