Osaka Castle Park
2.9 miles / 4.7 km / 28 minutes by train.
Osaka Castle Park is one of the best places to see the cherry blossoms in the Kansai region with about 3,000 cherry trees in full bloom. It is a large park with the imposing Osaka Castle at its heart boasting more than 400 years of history, surrounded by a moat, Japanese gardens, a music hall and a baseball stadium.
With a deep sense of history and a collection of modern buildings around the park, the scenery here, unique to Osaka, is truly a must-see.
The best time to come and see is from the end of March through to the beginning of April.
