Old Places Everywhere

Thursday, August 23rd - Osaka

The parts of Osaka Castle that are original are all over 400 years old, almost twice as long as the United States has been a country. This is part of wall over-looking the inner moat, and the guard tower, both of which were part of the original castle. As big as the castle is today, the original castle and outlying buildings covered five times its current size, covering almost all of that section of Osaka.
