20 Years of Wendy Wu Tours

At the time of its construction in the late 1500s by shogun Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Osaka Castle was the largest and most magnificent castle that Japan had ever seen. A turbulent history of siege and destruction led to a 1930s reconstruction that recaptures all of the castle’s original glory which, very luckily, managed to escape damage during World War II. The castle is still wonderfully formidable, with a moat and towering ramparts, all set in a lovely park. Five stories from the outside but 8 stories within, the interior of the castle is now a museum dedicated to the original founder, Toyotomi Hideyoshi with artefacts including art and armour.
