Yo, not dead.

Here’s some photos

So yeah, Osaka Castle. It was actually really impressive, not so much the castle itself (I mean it was, but you know what I mean), but the extent of the grounds, and the way that it’s like right next to one of the business districts in Osaka is just so cool.

In particular the last couple of photos, they’re outside of the castle proper, but still within the grounds as it were, it was really fun just having a wander through those.

Oh yeah, and to add to the already slightly surreal setting, there was a small music festival that started as I was walking through the forests, so rather a “wtf” moment, but all very cool.
