This photo story is to guide you step-by-step as you explore the Osaka Castle and the Osaka Castle Park. The thirteenth (and last!) leg of the journey begins at the Sengan Turret, then proceeds finally to the Otemon Gate, the official entrance of Osaka Castle! Each historical building has some stories attatched to them, written in detail in the photo captions. You may be thinking this is the end of your journey to explore the Osaka Castle and now you can go home. If so you are completely wrong! There are other delights you can find in this vast vicinity and you'll regret if you go home now! Those who'd like to explore more, please read my other photo stories. Your journey still goes on! For further information about Osaka Castle itself, please see the index here.

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
