Osaka Castle

The most impressive view of the castle is, unfortunately, from the outside. After being _completely_ destroyed in WWII it was reconstructed in 1931 out of concrete. The interior has some points of interest, it doesn't retain nearly as much as its former prestige.

And while it is not as grand as when it first was built, it still offers a lot in the way of information of Japanese life as it was during the times of its life in the form of video and artifactual exhibits.
