Osaka is one of Japan’s ‘Three Famous Castles’ along with Himeji and Kumamoto castles
It is a ‘flat land-style’ castle, with man-made defences rather than natural ones
The castle walls we see today are the original ones that were built in 1620 – no mortar or cement was used; the stones simply interlock
The grounds surrounding the castle include 15 other historical structures, including temples and shrines
Look closely at the castles roof and you’ll see dolphin and tiger motifs, all gilded with gold
