Osaka Castle In Japan - by Canon - Castelo De Osaka


The Real Thing  At Winter
Located near the center of Osaka Prefecture, Osaka Castle was built on flat land on the Uemachi Plateau, on the former site of the Ishiyama Honganji Temple. In 1583, Toyotomi Hideyoshi completed construction of this magnificent and splendid castle, which took three years in total. The castle fell in 1615 during the fighting known as the winter siege and summer siege of Osaka. Later, Tokugawa Hidetada rebuilt and greatly remodeled the castle. However, most of this remodeled Osaka Castle was destroyed during the Boshin War. Today's castle was restored in 1931, based on paintings of the original on folding screens. Together with those in Nagoya and Kumamoto, Osaka Castle numbers among Japan's three most important castles. - Canon

Osaka Castle In 1865
Localizado próximo ao centro da Cidade de Osaka, o Castelo de Osaka foi construído sobre o Platô de Uemachi, no lugar do antigo Templo de Ishiyama Honganji. Em 1583, Toyotomi Hideyoshi terminou a obra deste grandioso castelo, o que levou três anos. O castelo foi destruído em 1615, durante a batalha que ficou conhecida como "o cerco de Inverno e Verão de Osaka". Mais tarde, Tokugawa Hidetada reconstruiu e melhorou muito o castelo. No entanto, muito do que foi remodelado, foi destruído na Guerra Boshin. O castelo foi restaurado em 1931, baseado em pinturas do castelo original feitas em biombos. Juntamente com o Castelo de Nagoya e o de Kumamoto, o Castelo de Osaka figura entre os três mais importantes castelos do Japão.

    1. Hello, Young Stan,

      Thanks for the tip and the visit!
      I will do it tomorrow! It is a coincidence, I am building this church, but I rescale to the half size. It is a good easy-to-build model!

      Greetings from Brazil!
