Kishiwada Castle is located in Kishiki-cho, in Kishiwada City. Kishiwada Castle, also known as Chikiri Castle, is said to have been built by Wada Takaie, a relative of Kusunoki Masashige. The castle tower was built in 1585, when Toyotomi Hideyoshi's grandfather, Koide Hidemasa, began to expand the castle. The current three-tier / three-story castle tower was built in 1954, after the previous five-story burned down when it was struck by lightning in 1827. During the time of the Meiji Restoration, with the tower and gate destroyed, only the moat and stone walls still stood. In 1943, the site was designated as a historical site by Osaka Prefecture, and in 2014, Kishiwada Castle Garden (Hachijin no Niwa) was designated as a Place of Scenic Beauty. It is also a famous flower-viewing spot.

While Osaka prefecture is the country's second smallest prefecture, its capital, Osaka City, is the country's third-largest and arguably one of the most popular in the Kansai region thanks to its vibrant nightlife, the Osaka people's openness, and its much-loved cuisine, which has earned it the nickname âthe nation's kitchen."
