Osaka castle

It was a distance before finally reaching the door step of the grand Osaka palace but every step taken was worth it. Arriving at the Osaka castle you will be greeted by a beautiful pond with ducks leaving ripples in its wake, leaving me pondering what I could expect next. Making my way up the Osaka castle I love watching how the scenery unfolds witnessing The transformation of Serenity to the bustling shops and performances outside the Osaka palace.

Entering the Osaka palace for the first time felt so grand. It had wood floorings and pictures that tell the history and battles fought at the palace. However, what I was really looking forward to was standing atop the Osaka palace and getting a bird’s eye view of Osaka. Finally, reaching the top of the Osaka palace the view was really breathtaking.
