You haven't been to Osaka if you did not visit the Osaka Castle. This is a must and for great reasons. It is beautiful, surrounded by gardens and pockets of littles parks within a huge park. That I went there during fall was a bonus as the entire park looked so pleasantly colourful.

I just visited the Castle in the third week of November. The weather was perfect and the fall colors had settled in. I came by foot from the Hilton Osaka. The river was a great journey and approaching was easy, but not obvious. There is so much to do and see here in the castle itself, but the courtyard was... More

The castle itself is quite nice and on each story you find snippets of history related with the castle. There is a lift inside that takes you all the way to the top and then you start walking down 1 story at a time whilst reading on the various historical sections available in each story Apart the castle, you must...

A very nice place to visit during your trip to Osaka, the Castle inside doesn´t worth, but the gardens and surroundings are nice.

We went to the park going to OOsaka Castle. The autumn foliage of trees was breathtaking! It was a long walk so always wear comfy shoes.

Osaka park is a beautifull park. It is one of the few spots located in the city center. Good for jogging and running

This is a great place for a walk even if you aren't going to see the castle. It offers spectacular views of the building and looks beautiful in Autumn.

I enjoyed walking around Osaka Castle Park as it is quite pretty. There are quite a few food and drink vendors throughout the park so even if you don't bring anything with you there is still plenty to buy/eat. Recommend to go there as it is on the way to Osaka Castle as well
