Hanami: Cherry blossom viewing through the Tunnel

造幣局桜の通り抜け

Osaka Mint Bureau arguably has the best collection of sakura in Japan - Its only open to the public one week a year.

I was lucky to be there. Weather was "bad" - what was a luck too - less crowd and better for photography.

Actually, after comments below, I understand that less crowd was because we came there just a day before an official opening day.

 

The year of 2015 marks 132 years of the Japan Mint Cherry Blossom Viewing in Osaka.

Number of cherries tree varieties: 132 kinds

Number of trees: 350
