Osaka Day Trip 1st part: the Castle

7-days wandering solo in summer Japan
May 28 - June 04, 2013 Tuesday to Tuesday

Nara afternoon solo tour 

1st part of my Osaka tour, last day-trip in Japan. I navigated first the Universal Studios themepark in Universal Studios City JR station to leave my backpack on nearest locker area then proceed to Osakajokuen (osaka city hall) JR station for the castle.

With 1,250 Japanese plum trees and 4,500 cherry trees, Osaka Castle Park is famous spot for spring flower viewing festivities. The Osaka Castle Chrysanthemum Festival is held in the autumn. The illuminated castle tower, shining golden at night, is a must see sight.

How to go to Osaka Castle:

Using Osaka JR loop line, alight to Osakajokuen JR station. Then, walk around 1km away to the entrance. Operating hours is from 0900H to 1700H with entrance fee of 600yen and free for 15yrs old and below. Group discount available for minimum 15 visitors.
