Osaka castle, one of the most popular to visit inside a major city boundaries in Japan. The original dates from the 16th century and had a main role in the unification of Japan.
Nowadays and after many restorations, is a museum about the history of the caslte and the facts that surrounded it for centuries.
My favourite part of all is this quote “In 1660, lightning ignited the gunpowder warehouse and the resulting explosion set the castle on fire. In 1665, lightning struck and burnt down the main tower.”
What are the odds of just in 5 years that the castle gets struck by lightning?
