How to Experience Cherry Blossom Season in Osaka
Japan’s cherry blossom season is an event like no other, particularly in the Kansai city of Osaka, a town where cherry tree–lined parks and scenic monuments offer the perfect backdrop. Here are some ways to enjoy this special annual Osaka event.

When to Go
The peak of cherry blossom (also called hanami) season generally takes place between the last week of March and the first two weeks of April, with the peak period of blooms occurring around April 1. However, the specific time for this annual event depends on weather conditions. Be sure to leave some flexibility in your travel plans for the best chance of seeing the fleeting flowers.

Where to Go
The Osaka Mint, which opens its doors for free during mid-April, offers a lovely garden complete with more than 300 cherry trees. Kema Sakuranomiya, a public park, is another great spot for cherry blossom viewing, thanks to the 5,000 blossoming trees that line the Okawa River. Osaka Castle is also one of the best places to admire blossoms, particularly at Nishinomaru Park along the castle’s western flank.

How to Go
Many cherry blossom tourists in Osaka choose to enjoy this special season by taking part in a full- or half-day city sightseeing tour. Participants get to explore some of Osaka’s top attractions surrounded by pink blossoms while traveling by foot and on the water during a fun-filled river cruise. It’s the perfect way to cover more ground during your visit.
