I stubbornly hauled my heavy pack and school backpack around for miles to get to the Osaka Castle. Then instead of paying
100 Yen ($1USD), I continued to carry the weight all the way up and down the stairs inside of the castle.
This was my first
visit to a Japanese castle. A warlord was responsible for the creation of this castle. Unfortunately it was
detroyed to ruins many times, so the building you see in place now is most a 1900's remake. The
entire inside of the building is a tourist trap filled with war monger artifacts. [Photo by: young Japanese girl]
