Travel Guide - Osaka Castle

InformationInformation

Osaka Castle was originally built by Toyotomi Hideyoshi after he achieved his goal of unifying Japan. The largest, impregnable castle at that time was completed in 1583 and became a symbol of Hideyoshi's power. After Hideyoshi's death, however, it was destroyed by the armies of Tokugawa Ieyasu during the Summer War of Osaka in 1615. Even though the castle had been rebuilt by the Tokugawa shogunate within 10 years, the castle burned down later by lightning. The present castle is the third generation built in 1931 and is Osaka's foremost attraction today. The castle's Yagura (turret) and gigantic stone walls remain as they were in the Edo Period (1603 - 1868).
The present castle's Tenshukaku (castle tower) is a concrete reproduction of the original. The interior of the building houses a museum that displays a number of historically significant artifacts including the folding screen of the Summer War of Osaka and Toyotomi Hideyoshi memorabilia. The 8th floor provides superb views over the city of Osaka.
