Osaka Castle Museum: The View of Osaka and a Little History

Osaka Castle that exists today is a reconstruction of the original building – which is why there is a very modern feel inside the structure – complete with elevators and a convenient stairway passage up the eight-story castle.

The view from the top was magnificent and provided a really clear vantage point for Osaka. It was quite beautiful, looking out over the park that surrounds the castle and into the modern buildings of Osaka.

The museum provided a lot of history into the building and occupation of Osaka Castle. And while I did find the dramatization animated screens and miniature models of Osaka fascinating, the rest of it did sort of bore me. It was all a little out of context since my knowledge of Japanese history is limited to a East Asian course I took years ago in university that covered not just ancient Japanese history but that of China and Korea as well.
