Osaka Castle 大坂城 is and will remain my favorite whether it is to see cherry blossom or color change. This year we have not been very lucky with hanami as it has been raining constantly for the last few days.  However I made it a point to visit Osaka Castle even if it was just for an hour when it stopped raining. For those who don’t know Hanami 花見 or “flower viewing” is the Japanese traditional custom of enjoying the transient beauty of flowers.

Osaka Castle is the most popular spot for hanami other than Kema Sakuranomiya Park and Osaka Expo Park. There are about 4300 cherry blossom trees planted there! I went there for a short time which was spent in taking pictures and filming videos. So I didn’t actually get a chance to sit under a Sakura tree and enjoy beer and karage. Some people were brave enough to enjoy hanami under an umbrella but unfortunately I lack that kind of patience. However I am definitely going back again, that is, if we have enough Sun! And this time no one can stop me from picnicking under a sakura tree!
