Osaka Castle

was built in 1585 by Toyotomi Hideyoshi who was one of the most popular shoguns in Japan.  This year is the 400th anniversary after the end of Osaka Summer War.  Actually big war has never occurred in Japan after the Osaka Summer War.  The gozabune boat that Toyotomi Hideyoshi played in the inner moat of the Castle was reproduced using folding screen painting.  The gozabune boat is covered in about 3,000 gold leaves.
