Great castle built by Hideyoshi.
The thing I looked forward to the most at this trip was Osaka-jo castle !
After we got out of the kissaten in Nakatsu, we went to Osakajo castle by subway.
We passed through some gates and then headed to Osaka castle tower !
400 year have passed since Siege of Osaka castle summer campaign this year. So some events will be held 🙂
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…
Fine view of Osaka city.
Shadow of the castle

Safety wire netting disturbed me … 😛

Situation of summer campaign of siege of Osaka Castle.
