今年は大阪夏の陣から400年ということで、イベントもいろいろやってるみたいですよ(`・ω・´)

I couldn’t see last year, but if they show projection mapping this year, too, I’ll come again.

I went to there several years ago, but I had heavy suitcase and I gave up to enter the castle.
But this time I saw  well, and I found that they keep our baggages near the ticket office ! Oh my !

So I entered into the castle this time.
I bought ticket at ticket vending machine and went into the castle.

Artillery battery welcomed us…
