Osaka

Osaka is sort of the Chicago of Japan. It has its own dialect, is way more relaxed than Tokyo and even gets seriously passionate about its losing baseball team. Yet Osaka, flattened during WWII, seemed eager to make its comeback in order to be a business center, rather than to be a scenic destination. Which is not to say there aren’t lovely things in Osaka: the castle (a rebuild), a temple considered the first Buddhist temple in Japan and a Shinto shrine of architectural significance.

Osaka Castle
The park was wonderful. I didn't expect that they would turn the inside of the castle to somewhat modern. I expected that they would preserved the place inside.
