Back in October, I headed down to Osaka to do some wandering around. One of the places visited was Osaka Castle.
I stayed at one of the Toyoko Inns in Osaka and their check-in time was in the mid-afternoon. As I got to the hotel during the late morning hours, I checked in the luggage, grabbed a taxi and headed off to Osaka Castle.
I had previously posted photos of Osaka Castle, but these are mainly shots taken on the way to the castle.
Also, an old cannon and one of the ornate fish figures on the castle are also shown.
Osaka Castle is a reproduction, built of ferro-concrete in the 1930s.
