Osaka Castle has always been in the shadow of another highly recommended castle, famous for its architectural beauty, Himeji Castle. Himeji Castle, located in the neighboring prefecture of Hyogo, has been under renovation for quite some years, so in the past few years I have frequently visited Osaka Castle instead. Osaka Castle is illuminated at night-time which brings out its real beauty, and I have photographed the castle from various spots, like from the castle grounds and nearby Osaka Business Park. A visit in the late evening is highly recommended.

Travelling to various places and locations in Japan for over 20 years now, I want to share my experiences and also hear about destinations that I still have not been to in the land of the rising sun. Am a photography enthusiast and love to do slow shutter blue hour photography in Tokyo.
