Best Selection of Osaka Sightseeing Spots (1) Osaka Castle

by Kenji

I'd like to recommed you the following sightseeing spot in Osaka if you are planning to go round in the city.

[ Osaka Castle ]

Best Selection of Osaka Sightseeing Spots (1) Osaka Castle

The castle is the most popular spot as a symbol of Osaka and must-see sightseeing spot,originally built about 400 years ago by Toyotomi Hideyoshi,then-powerful ruler of Japan.

Unfortunately the original one was burned down to the ground by war and the present main tower was built in 20th century, financed by donations from the citizens of Osaka.

The castle features many large and shining golden ornaments such as imaginary sea creature on the rooftop and golden tea room inside and other cultural property.

I missed the chance to wear sumurai armor and battle helmets this time but I will try them to become a samurai military lord at my next visit.

One of the major attraction of the castle is excellectlly built-up huge stone walls surrounding it,consisting of about 40000 rocks.   I wonder how many people were involved in the constructon ? !

“ A good overview of Kyoto ”

Very Good
1 week ago Traveler: Leanne -   Tour Guide: Kenji

Kenji was very pleasant and knowledgeable, and we enjoyed our day with him. We did have occasional challenges with his English unlike our other guides in Japan. But overall very pleased with the areas we visited. I would forewarn people who visit Kyoto with TripleLights to be aware of the additional costs involved for the tour. We spent between $90-$100USD for taxi fares, entrance fees and lunch f...

Kenji was so organized with planning our two days together. He carefully took all of our input and planned perfect days for the three of us (age 14 to 77). My mother has challenging food allergies and he carefully selected restaurants to accommodate her. He is kind and knowledgeable! We highly recommend him for your tour days.

We had a great day with Kenji in Kyoto. We saw all the main sights . We only had one day so we asked him to fit as much as he could into one day. He was very informative but also fun. We had a great lunch at a local noodle restaurant. I would recommend Kenji as a tour guide.

Mr. Kanji took us on an unusual experience which we requested We wanted to visit the town where my wife's mother was raised. It is not a typical tourist destination. We were very nervous because of the emotional experience as well as we do not speak Japanese. From the beginning he helped us relax. He was very organized and seemed to have all the answers. So I asked if he had ever taken any other p...

My wife and I spent a wonderful day with Kenji in Kyoto recently. From the moment Kenji and I started communicated, he was very open and very easy to deal with. We reviewed what we were interested in seeing, and then Kenji designed a tour that fit our needs. Unlike other tourguides we have experienced, Kenji then stuck with the itinerary, allowing us to see everything we had discussed. His E...

Kenji was a delightful tour guide - well prepared with graphics and learning materials for us. He made excellent use of our time in Osaka, despite the additional planning challenges of a rainy day.
