Day 18: Osaka
Osaka Castle

Osaka Castle

Continue your exploration of Osaka with a visit to the city's most prominent symbol, Osaka Castle, built by Hideyoshi Toyotomi, who succeeded in unifying the entire country in the 16th Century. The inside of the castle has been made into a museum which has a number of exhibits celebrating Japan's samurai history. A panoramic view of Osaka City can be seen from the observation deck on the 8th floor. The castle grounds now form a large tree-filled park. Only a 15 minute walk from Morinomiya Station on all lines or Tanimachi 4-chome Subway Station.

Take a 60-minute cruise on the "Aqua Liner" waterbus from the Osaka Castle harbour (where it will also return). Osaka is a "water city" where its people and culture have benefited by this access to water since ancient times. The tour through waterways presents views of Osaka Castle from every angle, Tenmangu Shrine, Nakanoshima Island, etc. The boat cruise starts at three piers, Osakajo, Tenmabashi and Yodyabashi every 30 minutes from 10:00am to 7:30pm (round-trip JPY 1,700).

Stay: Hotel Vischio Osaka by Granvia -2/2
