    Osaka Higashiosakashi Higashitoyourachou 12-12
    This vast park at the foot of mountains is approx. six minute-walk from the Kintetsu Railway Nara Line's Hiraoka Station. In the cherry blossom square, a famous cherry blossom viewing spot in Higashi Osaka City, about 100 Yoshino cherry blossoms bloom every year during the peak season, painting the entire area in pink. In addition, there are also observatories where you can watch Osaka's spectacular sunset, and a stone tablet with a haiku written by Matsuo Basho during his last trip crossing Kuragari Pass. Forest Toy Box, which reopened in June 2016, is 100-120 meters high, and uses its height and slope for a roller slide that is very popular with children.

    Nice park for a morning walk if you dont have a lot of time. Nice little waterfall. Few shrine along the way up.

    Osaka Osakashi Kita-ku Tenma 1-1-79
    Every year in the middle of April for about one week, an approximately 560-meter road in Kita Ward, Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture from the Japan Mint southern gate to the northern gate is opened to visitors for cherry blossom viewing. Many precious varieties of cherry blossoms line the road, including benitemari, odemari, kodemari, and Yoro blossoms. After the sun sets, the blossoms are gently illuminated, creating an almost otherworldly spectacle. Temmabashi Station and Osakajo-kitazume Station are the closest to the entrance. The premises are one-way only, and the surrounding areas have limited vehicle access, so using public transportation is recommended.

While Osaka prefecture is the country's second smallest prefecture, its capital, Osaka City, is the country’s third-largest and arguably one of the most popular in the Kansai region thanks to its vibrant nightlife, the Osaka people’s openness, and its much-loved cuisine, which has earned it the nickname "the nation’s kitchen."
