The castle is now widely used by Osaka citizens as a park.

After looking at the view from the observation deck of the main tower, you will learn about Osaka and Japan's history centered on samurai through the exhibits on each floor.

At the facilities in MIRAIZA on the castle grounds, you can also experience ninja knife throwing!
