Best time for Sakura viewing!
The Sakura or cherry blossoms in Osaka Castle Park are in full bloom now.
There are about 3,000 cherry trees such as “Somei yoshino cherry”,“Yaezakura”, and“hill cherry” in the park.
Sakura reminds us how human life is short and fragile, but then again, so beautiful.
People traditionally hold outdoor hanami parties under the cherry blossoms, enjoying food and drink with friends, family and colleagues. Some people enjoy feasting rather than looking at the cherry blossom.
For the Japanese, cherry blossoms are the defining symbol of the spring season.
