SAKURA, the Cherry Blossom Season has come!!!!!!!!

We might have almost forgotten that spring's been coming
because of this unusual coldness for this season.

In Osaka, some cherry trees are beginning to have their flowers bloomed.
Now we are getting exited to know that SAKURA season is almost here!

Here are some recommended places for SAKURA viewing.

Highly recommended are those around the river in Osaka city.

Cherry Blossom viewing Walk-Through by Japan Mint Osaka

Known as SAKURA NO TOHRINUKE in Japanese. You can walk through
the tunnel of cherry blossom. From 14th to 20th April, 2011.

MINAMI TEMMA park to KEMA SAKURANOMIYA park
These parks are along the OKAWA, a river running through on the north
side of Osaka castle. The east end of MINAMI TEMMA park leads to
the west end of Japan Mint's walk through. Refer the map below.


The best way to enjoy all above is taking a ferry or a boat 
along the river, and OFUNE KAMOME is our favorite!
A small, cozy boat will make you feel like at home floating on the water.
*Japanese only, Ask our front staff for information ;-)

There are some other places to be recommended.

Also every tiny parks and streets have their own charm with cherry blossoms,
so once in Japan, you won't miss one.
