Osaka Castle was originally commissioned by Toyotomi Hideyoshi in 1684 but was later destroyed by the Tokugawa. The current reconstruction was built in the 1930s and updated in 1997. Although it is a reconstruction, the castle walls and moat are well-preserved and the inside contains a lot of information about Toyotomi Hideyoshi, as well as some artifacts. It also has an excellent view from the top of the surrounding park and city. The castle is also nice to look at from the outside with its unique green tiles.

Entrance is 600 yen, but it is free to roam around the park.
