As promised, we’re back with part 2 of our Osaka sakura tour. This time we walk through the Kema Sakuranomiya Park.
Where is Kema Sakuranomiya Koen?
Kema Sakuranomiya Koen, with over 4000 sakura trees, stretches along Ookawa river from Kemaaraizeki to Tenmabashi.
There are several ways to get to the park including walking about 5 minutes north-west from Osaka Castle or use on of the many train stations that arrive near the park. The JR Sakuranomiya Station is particularly close, and a quick walk south will get you to the park.
Here’s a rather…interesting video from one of the many sakura gatherings and parties that happen along the park:
