Sakura season open cherry blossom Road is a grand event of the Mint, an array of cherry blossoms can not be seen. Once satisfied with the desire to cherry cherry, Mint is the best choice.

I had a good time here, but since I came during cherry blossom season, there were sooooooo many tourists. If you want to avoid the crowds then maybe give it a miss.

A wonderful place to visit if you arrived late in April and missed the main cherry blossom season. Absolutely stunning and the blossoms are at their best, the varieties...even the lime green colour, most beautiful. Do check the opening hours to avoid disappointment.

There is 3km from JR Osaka station to the destination. Alternative plane is use Tanimachi-subway from Higashi-umeda to Higashi-morimachi, and the walk 15 min. Near by you can see Osaka-jou castle.
