Chausuyama: A historical spot relating to samurai Sanada Yukimura
“Chausuyama” is one of Osaka’s well-known hills, and is located at the Northeast of Tennoji Park.
This mountain is actually a historical place relating to a famous samurai.
The samurai is Sanada Yukimura, who nearly succeeded in cornering the great Ieyasu Tokugawa. Chausuyama is where he kept his troop headquarters during that very war. It is a must-see spot for samurai nerds.
Take a time-traveling journey at the very place where samurais fought for power.

The garden roads have been built for convenience over the years. Walk up the hill and you will see explanations of Sanada’s life, and some of his famous quotes. You can even find some military plans he drew for the wars he fought.
Chausuyama is only 26m high, so it is perfect for a quick stroll.
