Osaka Castle Illuminage
A paid-entry illumination event with a very Japanese theme, this is a great way to get festive in Osaka this winter. Taking their inspiration from the Taisho period, the show will take you back to the Japan of a century ago. There will also be Western-inspired installations and a roman-dining restaurant. There will be a maze area, a Tennoji-zoo inspired section and areas dedicated to the Taisho and Meiji eras.
Advance tickets are available from Pia, 7-11 and Lawson machines as well as at JTB offices. If you present your foreign passport (without residency) you can get the discounted price on the door. The opening times are from 5pm – 10pm but the lights will be switched on from 5.30pm – 9.30pm.
