Osaka Day 2 - Osaka Castle

Day 2 morning we went to Osaka Tourist Information and bought the 2 days pass to visit interesting places in Osaka. Can refer to Osaka-Info on the package that they offered.


Dapat tickets and map trus rasa cam start Amazing Race because we first need to find the right train line. There are too many lines and nama sumer cam lebey kurang so I just leave the task to Jeeb because every time I read the signage or map I just make him more confused. Heh! So we managed to get on the train heading to Osaka Castle. But after 2 stops, Jeeb realized he dropped the 2-days ticket. *gasp!* We went back to the same station but we can’t go to the other side without exit first. Le sigh. Jenuh explain kat the officer that we lost one ticket. He was very helpful and advised to buy another ticket but we ended up beli ticket for one day pass which is lagik rugi. Because we were not going to ride the same line for one whole day T___T And then masuk each places still kene bayar entrance fee. Time nie agak frustrating because rasa duit wasted.

But we tried to stay positive. We went ahead to Osaka Castle Museum where it is famous for precious cultural property related to Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Osaka Castle. It was 15-20 mins walk from subway Tanimachi 4-chome station.

That place was actually surrounded by a river (big drain maybe?).

It was chilled weather at that time and the sun was so bright. Should've bawak sunglasses...remember that!

We singgah this place first because we thought this was the one hehe. Ternampak plak flowering plum trees so tersangkut amik gambar. I didn't see any sign though so tatau lah aper nama temple nie.

We went straight to level 8 to watch the view. We made a quick stop at each floor on the way down. Some of the floors displayed 3d short videos of that era, armour and battle costumes, detailed miniature of the castle, etc. Never thought i enjoyed museum stuff heheh.
