Osaka Castle

New Sightseeing Spot in Osaka Castle Park

“MIRAIZ-OSAKA-JO” is a new sightseeing spot built by renewing the former 4th Division Headquarters Government Building (former Osaka City Museum), which was a historic building in Osaka Castle Park.

Inside MIRAIZ-OSAKA-JO, cafes, souvenir shops, and restaurants with a nice atmosphere are lined up, making this building the perfect place for a break in Osaka Castle sightseeing.

MIRAIZ-OSAKA-JO has everything foreign tourists want, such as a ninja experience and a souvenir shop where you can find a lot of samurai goods. What’s more, English is available here so no need to worry about language.


The history of Osaka Castle

You can enjoy the history of Osaka Castle on the 1st floor (free). The historical chronology of Osaka Castle, the role of Osaka Castle at the end of the Edo period, and the gold leaf tiles of the real Toyotomi period Osaka Castle are also exhibited here.

We recommend you visiting here before entering Osaka Castle so you’ll be able to enjoy it even more.

Blue Bird Roof Top Bar

The combination of local cuisine, drinks, and the spectacular view of Osaka Castle from the terrace on the 4th floor is absolutely breathtaking.

This bar opens both daytime and night, allowing you to enjoy two different sides of Osaka Castle. At night, Osaka Castle will be illuminated and you don’t want to miss it. Events are held occasionally as well.

MIRAIZ-OSAKA-JO is a popular gourmet spot in Osaka Castle Park. The rooftop cafe welcomes you with an Osaka traditional cultural performance on weekday lunches and afternoons. Under the supervision of Nogaku artist Okura Kyogen, restaurant and cafe employees learn traditional Osaka cultures such as drums, koto, and dance, and perform “Taiko Taiko” as a “hospitality corps”. Please enjoy the traditional Japanese culture with Osaka meals.

The instructors will teach you how to use the sword and how to get around in samurai culture. You will get to wear a kimono and start with a seiza/thank-you greeting.

From the basics such as how to hold and slash a sword using a wooden sword, you will practice how to fight against your opponent.
