Osaka Castle (大坂城 or 大阪城,   Ōsaka-jō) is a castle in Osaka, Japan. One of Japan's most important buildings due to its role in the unification of the country during the Azuchi-Momoyama period, It was built in the late 1500s, and was in use far into the 19th Century. It was gradually rebuilt over the course of the 19th and early-20th century after centuries of neglect, with the keep being restored in 1928, and restorations finishing in 1997. It first appeared in Godzilla Raids Again.

Godzilla and Anguirus fight near the keep in Godzilla Raids Again

With the once-beautiful city of Osaka now in ruins, Godzilla and Anguirus fight around the partly-restored castle, and Godzilla slams Anguirus into the castle's keep, demolishing it with little effort. Anguirus, severely injured atop the ruins of the keep, tried desperately to fight back, but was killed after Godzilla bit into his neck with his jaws, then burnt the mortally wounded kaiju alive with a blast of his Atomic Breath. Anguirus' lifeless body toppled off the remains of the Castle, and into the Okawa River.

During Barugon's rampage through Osaka, he came very close to the castle and when a few jets attacked, he froze the keep with his freeze breath. A short time later, Barugon unleashed his Rainbow Beam and destroyed most of the long-range missile launchers that were firing at him. Gamera arrived in Osaka and battled Barugon, but was frozen by Barugon's freeze breath. Gamera eventually thawed and flew after Barugon, with his flame jets thawing the castle in the process.
