Osaka - The Greatest Castle in Japan

The Osaka Castle is a testament to one of the greatest moments of the 16th century, when a feudal lord unified Japan under one kingdom. Your private transfer will greet you at Kansai International Airport when you arrive and escort you to the wonder of Osaka. The city features Osaka Castle, which is complete with a tall stone wall that was made from 40,000 rocks.
