Nice walk in the park

We went to the park going to OOsaka Castle. The autumn foliage of trees was breathtaking! It was a long walk so always wear comfy shoes.

A very nice place to visit during your trip to Osaka, the Castle inside doesn´t worth, but the gardens and surroundings are nice.

Osaka park is a beautifull park. It is one of the few spots located in the city center. Good for jogging and running

This is a great place for a walk even if you aren't going to see the castle. It offers spectacular views of the building and looks beautiful in Autumn.

I enjoyed walking around Osaka Castle Park as it is quite pretty. There are quite a few food and drink vendors throughout the park so even if you don't bring anything with you there is still plenty to buy/eat. Recommend to go there as it is on the way to Osaka Castle as well

Visit while the autumn leaves were on their peak. Absolutely beautiful around the castle (outside the moat area). The castle itself can be a bit chaotic, full of rude tourists and local stalls but definitely worth a visit.

You can overload on castles when you visit Japan, but this one is very nice. If you don't get the chance to go to Kyoto, definitely stop at this one. Even if you do, consider this one, as it is scenic, large, and a lot of fun for kids.

It's quite a walk from the train station but it's all worth it. The castle provides a nice view of Osaka at the same time presents the historical past of Japan.
