Stroll around Osaka Castle Park to appreciate the vast urban park's imposing stone walls and moats--remnants of the military temple complex they once protected. In addition to an onsite castle, the park includes a number of historic gates and storehouses, as well as sports facilities, a concert hall, and forested areas. The vibrant foliage changes colors with the seasons, and in the spring, over 600 blooming cherry blossom trees cover the grounds with their soft pink petals.

One of my fave place in Osaka. Quite a walk but the experience was awesome. Very informative. We took the train ride and very easy to find the place for as long as you have a reliable navigator. Foods and souvenirs are also reasonable
The park is huge with well designed pathways. Lovely view of the castle and the canal. The illusion museum shops offers good selection of souvenirs and food. Didn't actually entered the castle just spent a good few hours strolling in the park. Would be great in cherry blossom season.
