Osaka Castle @ Osaka, Japan

The park around Osaka Castle is a famous tourist attraction especially during sakura season and autumn. Osaka castle is significant as the castle is intended to become the center of a new, unified Japan under Toyotomi rule. It was the largest castle at the time (1583). The interior houses an excellent collection of displays relating to the castle, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and the city of Osaka. On the 8th floor is an observation deck with 360 degree views. The castle and park looks best during the cherry-blossom and autumn-foliage seasons.
