We used the subway to get to Osaka Castle. When you exit the station, there is a large sign with directions to the castle. I noticed many people read the map wrong, and crossed the street to the right. That is not the right way. Follow the arrow that is on the sign (It points left).
The castle itself was beautiful, and it was nice to stroll around the area. We didn't go inside as I know from experience, the inside is not nearly as spectacular.
I still recommend you stop by to marvel at it's beauty.

The outside of the building and the surrounding park are lovely. Inside the castle is a modern museum with with lots of information about the castle and Hideyoshi Toyotomi, who built it. Each of the 7 floors of the castle is successively smaller as you ascend, so avoid visiting during Chinese New year or you'll be caught in crowds of tourists like I was.

My daughter insisted to see the place even though it was raining on that day. Nonetheless we didn’t have much problem reaching the place via subway train. From the moment we entered the park I knew that we will have a great time in it. Walking through long paths with its lush greenery is a relaxing time in spite of the weather. We were so surprised to see crowds of people entering the castle ground by the hundreds and mostly taking photos for their memoirs. There’s also a building where you can find a number of food stalls and restaurants to replenish your energy after a long walk around the park. Clean public toilets are also available around the park for your convenience.
Osaka Museum of History is just outside of the park for another point of interest for relic lovers.
Don’t miss this amazing place if you visit Osaka!

The castle gives you a pretty great view from the city. But the museum inside is not that interesting or worth it, as almost everything is in Japanese. But take take an hour and a half to walk around the park, take a picture of the castle from the outside and enjoy some street food! There's plenty of vendors set up through out the park. Not much else to do in the area. About a 12 min walk from the nearest subway station.
