Nishinomaru Garden西の丸庭園


This park lies outside Osaka Castle's Otemon Gate, and is a popular place for cherry blossom viewing. 300 cherry trees (mainly Yoshino cherry trees) are planted, and every spring tourists gather here to see the cherry blossoms. Even outside of the cherry blossom season, the view of the castle tower and stone walls through the trees is impressive, and many people visit to take photos of it. Also contained within the park are many scenic spots, including 13 Important Cultural Properties, such as the Senganyagura and the Enshogura. The park is said to the place where the residence of Toyotomi Hideyoshi's legal wife, Kitano Mandokoro, once stood.

          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."
