So, last Saturday the plan was to go to the nearby city Kobe but because Kobe was in the earthquake’s epicenter (damn you Sand King!) we decided to explore Osaka some more going to Osaka Castle. The view from the top was, as it usual is, very nice but other than that, I didn’t find the castle that exciting. It’s always fun to learn about history but I’ve read quite a lot of Japanese history already so I didn’t feel like doing it again. And the inside was the usual museum thing; I’d much rather re-live the interior like it was back in the days. The castle’s exterior was beautiful though, and its surroundings for that matter.
