What to Do around Osaka Castle

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Although Osaka Castle is famous for tourist as a destination for travel to Japan, what you would do after seeing it?

It’s obvious that Osaka has so many places to visit, but it’s not easy to decide the places to go at the same time.

Let me introduce some recommendation around Osaka Castle.

Cruising around Osaka Castle

Hearing “cruising”, we tend to imagine that it is available only in quiet countryside.

However, cruising is exactly available in Osaka.

The course is going around the moth(stone wall) of Osaka Castle.

Since moth was built to prevent attack and being invaded to the castle of enemies at the age of civil war, the wall is high.

In addition, it is the Osaka Castle which has the highest moth among the castles in Japan.

Depending on the location of the moth, its height is 32 meters high.

It’s sure you will feel the fact that attacks by enemies were so frequently that the the wall is high when you go around the castle by cruise ship.
