Our short stint at Osaka, Japan left hubby and I just a little time to explore the beautiful city. Having no definite plans in mind but swing anything by, the locals pointed out that Osaka Castle is just nearby and it is worth a visit. The locals were right, the castle is a jewel even at night. However, we arrived a bit late and did not dare to go inside the Main Tower of the castle without having the certainty of being locked inside or not. We will probably add Osaka to our list of cities to visit again.
It is worth mentioning that Osaka Castle grounds contain thirteen structures which have been designated as Important Cultural Assets by the Japanese government.

I just came back from Osaka two days ago. I visited the castle and I’m writing a paper on it for my Intro to East Asia Class. It was breathtaking. Such a beautiful sight.
