Going to Osaka Castle is a must do if you are visiting Osaka and the grounds were beautiful. We paid the $7 to enter the castle to see what the fuss was all about. The coolest part was being able to get to the top for the panoramic city view. The downside was that there were so many people that it was difficult to find a spot (and we visited in low season...not sure how bad it would be in a busier season) and you can only get there by taking the stairs the last three floors so not a good choice if you have a difficult time climbing stairs.
Other than that, the museum on each floor below had a few nice pieces but not much explanation in English so it was hard to know what everything was.
It was worth it for the city view. :)
