    These snapshots from @ninnosleep taken in 2018 seem like a distant memory from long ago. However, it could also be a glimpse of hope of what things could soon be.

    The castle of Osaka is the major attraction of the town, and it surely is worth a visit.

But still people want to spend their leisure time and if there are few sights, one has to create them.
