Osaka Castle

Continuation from the Garden of Osaka Castle post. The building itself had been converted into a museum inside, telling the history of the Osaka Castle. Interesting fact, did you know that this is not the original Osaka Castle? In fact, it's not even sitting on a site where the original one sits. The original one was burnt down to the ground in the mid-1600s. This was a reconstruction they built according to architectural notes, blue prints and artworks that was done at the time. It was built on the same land, surrounded by moats.

Don't this look like some post-apocalyptic setting?
