Travel back to the time of the samurai (Edo period), just eight minutes from downtown Osaka

Amagasaki Castle was originally built in 1617, and was demolished after the end of the Edo Period.
The castle tower has been rebuilt with funding from a local entrepreneur, and opened to the public in 2019.
Visitors can learn first hand about the use of swords and guns and other aspects of samurai life. You are also welcome to enter tatami-floored rooms and dress in the costumes of the lord and princess of the castle, or samurai warriors – a wonderful photo opportunity.
There are convenient transport links to Amagasaki Castle from all points in the Osaka area including Umeda, Namba, Universal Studios and Kansai International Airport. Don't miss this local historic site.
