We want to see the Osaka Castle - a very impressive fort built by the Shoguns and improved and reinforced through the ages. Two moats, many towers and an impressive castle in the middle.

I guess they took the photos to sale on a day when it did not bother the goddess. I have stopped entering places where photos are not allowed, if I know it in advance. Everytime it turns out they just want to charge an exorbitant price for their photos even after you have paid a good price to see or do whatever event it is. The fortune ...
