Castle
“Osakajokoen is one of the nearests. From Kansai International Airport, Take an Airport Express on the Nankai Airport Line to Shin-Imamiya station. At Shin-Imamiya station, transfer to Osaka Loop Line. From there, you will get to Osakajokoen in 15 minutes. It takes about one hour and costs about one thousand yen from Kansai Internationl Airpot to Osakajokoen staion. The main tower was rebuilt in 1931 and the original does not exist anymore.  The cost for rebuilding the main tower was entirely funded by citizens of Osaka.  It’s 54.8 meters high. You can go up with an elevator. Please don’t remind us how ugly it is. The view from the top of the tower is outstanding! Shachihoko is a lion-headed fish in Japanese folkfore. The main tower has two of them on it’s roof. Osaka castle was originaly built by Hideyoshi Toyotomi.   Hideyoshi  made his way in the world from a low position and ruled over the whole country. Hokoku shrine is where Hideyoshi is enshrined.  The castle is surrrounded by a moat filled with water so that it is veary hard to invade.   There is also a dry moat.  It is on a higher place so they could not flood it. Do you see that the way the stone walls are piled up varies by location? They differ across the ages. The stones used for the wall were gathered from all over the country. The biggest stone in the stone wall in Osaka castle is called “octopus stone”.  It weighs 130 tons. It’s said that it’s called “octopus stone” because the pattern on the surface looks like an octopus. In Japan, we hava the custom of enjoying foods and drinks with a view of cherry blossoms. It’s called Ohanami. Osaka castle park is a popular site for Ohanami. It gets very crowded with people enjoying Ohanami in spring. Foods and drinks taste so much better when viewing pieces of cherry blossoms fall. Lets’s have a hanami party in the next cherry blossom season.”

Shopping Mall
“The rooftop is nice and the observatory floor always has a cool art exhibit for display; however it is overrated. The high-rise terrace offers a better atmosphere than the top floor and you don't have to pay !”
