In 1614, 1615 Tototomi clan had a fight with Tokugawa clan.  In fact Toyotomi made peace with Tokugwa in the winter war of Osaka in 1614, but next year Toyotomi was defeated by Tokugawa. As a result, Tokugawa Shogunate lasted over 260 years.

Samurai Museum and Busho Hall

 I visited Samurai Museum and Busho Hall in Osaka Castle Park.
At Samurai Museum you can experience the Warring States period via the latest technology using 4k ultra-high definition video tunnel and holograms.
 At Busho Hall you can try on samurai and ninja costumes.

I disguised myself as Toyotomi Hideyoshi wearing haori, or a short coat, and kaboto, or a war helmet of Hideyoshi. I'm sure you check out the dynamic special effects footage of Osaka Castle.

The performance of the Kanto Festival

Kanto Festival, one of the three major festivals in the Tohoku region, was held in Osaka Castle Park.  Kanto are long bamboo poles with  9 horizontal ones attached and many lit lanterns are hung on them.   As a kanto with 46 lit lanterns attached to the pole look like an ear of rice, the festival is also held to pray for a good harvest.

We enjoyed touring the Shihmizu area with Hideo. He was waiting for us when we got off the ship and took us to many places. Our only suggestion for the future is that because he is rather soft-spoken a microphone and speaker would be helpful as it was difficult to hear him in the back of the van. Other than that we wholeheartedly recommend him

But we did want an overview and got that and want to re...
