Sengan-yagura Turret

This is the oldest existing building in the current Osaka Castle Park along with the Inui-yagura Turret.
Since it was thought this turret was impregnable due its robust structure, a reward of sengan (a huge sum of money) was offered to any who were successful. Thus came the name gSengan-yagurah .
It is a National Important Cultural Property.
