The historical Osaka CastleOsaka Castle
With the short days we had in Japan, we had no choice but to leave Tokyo after two days. We boarded JR Shinkansen train which brought us to Shin-Osaka station after 2.5 hours.
Had our lunch at a random Japanese restaurant. First time in my life to try raw egg, still not my kind of thing haha
In order to get to Osaka Castle, you have to walk a distance through Otemon Gate as it was surrounded by a park. It was about 20-30 minutes walk under hot sun!! We can't resist but grabbed some matcha ice-cream outside of the castle entrance
We regretted for not coming here earlier to beat all the tour buses because the experience was less enjoyable when it was so packed with large groups of tourists. So we decided to stroll further from the castle and we found the perfect spot! I think it is really important to explore every travel attraction and look for the best spot for photos because you will sure regret if you just settle for an ordinary photo!
