I found another photograph taken from the same vantage point; the trees are slightly different but otherwise it could be the same photograph of Osaka castle and moat.
The castle was originally builtin 1528, but destroyed or damaged several times and rebuilt; the picture here shows the 1620 building, as repaired in 1843; much of it was destroyed in 1868, including the towers and wooden ramparts.
