From Osakajokoen Station was a very pleasant walk to the castle itself. Everywhere cherry blossom made the view even more magical than we had tried to imagine before. The constructions of the castle started in 1583, few years after was attacked and destroyed. Major reconstruction works finished 1997, which gave it a new glamour look. It looks impressive especially when the entire castle is surrounded by white and pink, cherry and plum blossom.
