The Glorious Osaka Castle

I’m surprised to know that Japan has a castle. And they do have some. Not just one.

Nowadays, the castle is turned into a museum with impressive presentation of history using digital technology that will blow you away. The presentations are set in different languages.

JAPAN IS THE LAND OF THE RISING SUN

Though there were not much to oggle at, there are too many things to read and video presentations to watch.

The castle is in a huge park where it is covered with trees and gardens. There’s also a moat at the entrance.

However, they close early–at 4:50 p.m. I arrived at 4:45! It was my lucky day!

When I got out from the castle, a lot of disappointed tourists were just taking pictures of the facade since the ticket booths were already closed. They had no idea it would close that early. Well, 4:50 PM is early for me and for some. In Japan, that might be late for a museum or a tourist attraction to be open to the public.

The top floor of the castle is the observation deck where you can see the panoramic views of the park and Osaka’s skyline from afar.

After the ultimate camwhoring, I decided to call it a day. I still have to do my laundry or else, I’ll be sightseeing tomorrow sans underwear. 🙂
