Osaka Castle: The Heart of Osaka!

Bridge!

Apart from the mouth-watering culinary experience it offers, Osaka Castle is, undoubtedly, the most popular landmark in Osaka and is often dubbed as the symbol of city itself. The Osaka Castle may not be the largest in Japan, but its strategic location in the heart of Japan propels the castle’s status as a hotspot for tourists. It is particularly popular with visitors during the Cherry Blossom season, which normally occurs in the first 2 weeks of April.

I was fortunate enough to steal a great deal to visit Osaka during its Cherry Blossom season. Many of the locals and tourists flocked to the castle for a picnic under the shade of the beautiful pinkish Sakura trees. The atmosphere I felt was significantly different from summer as it was a much cooler ambience. I have to say that the castle’s beauty can be admired from all angles which brought much delight to many of the picnickers in the area. I hope my gallery is able to capture the best of the castle’s scenery for your future travelling reference.

  1. I just can’t stop admiring the cherry blossoms… and then comes the bridge, wow! It adds a lot to the frame, but still, the flowers make everything look so cute and pink! Wonderful :)).
