Osaka Castle - Inui Yagura

乾櫓

The Inui Turret was opened for a limited time special exhibit in 2024 for the first time in 9 years. It is the oldest surviving structure at Osaka Castle along with the Sengan Turret, also built in 1620. 1620 was the first year of Osaka Castle's reconstruction under Tokugawa Hidetada.

The unique L-shaped turret provides commanding views over the west side of the castle and coverage from the Oteguchi to the Kyobashiguchi gate, the sprawling castle town and the important Kyokaido highway to Kyoto.
