Let’s go to the famous tourist attraction in early morning!! “Part1” is ・・・ Osaka Castle!!

Osaka Castle is one of the three great castles in Japan.
It is popular among the tourists from the foreign countries as a famous tourist attraction. d(*゚ー゚*)

But, Osaka Castle is crowded very much recently even on weekdays because it is very popular.
It sometimes wait for more than one hour to admission to the castle tower…

Therefore I introduce the time when Osaka Castle is not crowded.
The recommended time is an early morning!
It is not crowded until 9:00 when the castle tower opens.

What do you say to taking a walk early in the morning by Osaka Castle?

  2. Recommended time

1.Are there really few people early in the morning?

Are there really few people early in the morning? I went and really confirmed it.

This is the fountain Square of the Osaka Castle Park entrance.

This is the Tamatsukuri Gate.

Was it how you expected?
April 2 is the weekend (Saturday). In addition, a cherry tree is time in full blossom.
This day will be crowded very much. However, it isn’t crowded at 7:30 of the morning.

Castle tower square is also not crowded.

Because it is not crowded early in the morning, the photography of the wedding ceremony may be carried out.
