Osaka Castle 1 by dragonslayero Osaka Castle 1 by dragonslayero
:iconreadplz:

Ever since my first visit to Japan 5 years ago I have always been fascinated by the castles that country have been able to produce.
Previously I have visited Himeji, Hiroshima and Hirado castle, but finally I had the chance to see Osaka castle as well. Or Osaka-jo as is its original name.

Situated only a short train ride from Osaka/Umeda station there is no excuse for not seeing this castle. But if you really want to see it I advice you to visit after dark or during the sunset I did here.
I spent around an hour and more that evening just getting different light condition photos of the castle.

This is however not the original castle, but a concrete reproduction from modern times.
The original has burned down atleast once.
But for the full history of this castle I refer you to the wikipedia article I have linked below.

Very nice work. I love how the light of the castle contrasts with the dark sky above and the waters below.

Thank you very much.
This was my last evening here before going home and it just turned out to be a great evening. I will actually be going back here very soon so I might get more photos.
