Cherry Blossoms at Osaka Mint
Hanami by the Yodogawa
The cherry blossom walk at the Osaka Mint is like strolling through a botanic garden overflowing with sakura, the Japanese word for cherry blossoms. There are over 100 varieties on display, especially those with more than five petals, called Yaezakura in Japanese, which bloom a week later than the more common Yoshino variety. Like models at a fashion show, they are feted with the clicking of the cameras and adorations of "kirei, kirei”, praised for their beauty and charm. The Osaka Mint is moments away from the Yodogawa, where cherry blossoms line the river, and many people enjoy hanami parties amongst the seasonal market stalls selling street food like squid skewers and okonomiyaki, a kind of Japanese savory pancake.

Magnificent Night Views of Osaka
Seen from the Floating Garden of Umeda Sky Building
On a cold clear day in December 2013 I climbed to the top of Umeda Sky Building in Osaka to see the gorgeous night view from there.
Umeda Sky Building has a famous 'Floating Garden' on its rooftop, which is an observation floor that boasts a 360 degree panoramic view of the city of Osaka. The most important feature of this place, which pleases me a lot, is that since this is an open-air space, I don't have to worry about the reflections of lights on the glass windows. Although it's unbearably chilly to stand on the 40th floor of a 173-meter-high building, once you see this gorgeous night-time view, you'll forget about the chill for a while. This is the must-visit place if you ever come to Osaka!
