Cherry Blossoms in Osaka!

Hi there!!!

Looooooooooooooooooong time no see! I’m really sorry for the delay.

I finally came back to my blog again!

As you know, in Japan we have a great cherry blossoms season right now. I live in Osaka since last year, and my family and I enjoyed both night viewing and day viewing of cherry blossoms this year.

I hope you also can enjoy viewing cherry blossoms via my blog post!

 

We went to the Osaka Mint to enjoy looking at the night views, but we also met so many people there.

I learned I should go to the place at day time because there were so many people. Next year, I want to go there then.

 

I walked to a different place where we also can enjoy looking at cherry blossoms especially called “yae-zakura” in Japanese.

I really love this sort of cherry blossoms, and I really enjoyed them!

I painted the cherry blossoms on a plate and have showed the photos on my another blog.

    gorgeous, wonderful, I love to see the blossoms in Australia in the Spring but to see those in Japan – would be amazing. What month/s is always best for the blossoms? I hope one day I can visit. I especially like the night time views!

        My ‘short list’ for Japan would include cherry blossoms, gashapon, Japan limited edition Cheeky bears – and something of osamu Tezuka (Leo/Kimba!)

        Osamu Tezuka was born in the next prefecture where we live right now. There is his museum, and you can get some stuff there!
        You can find Gachapon everywhere in Japan! In my area where we live, I think we have some teddy bear shops! So, you can make your bucket lists come true!!

    I have collection of gacha Disney which I keep but I don’t collect anymore. But would love to see the place they come from, learn more of the gacha (and ufo catcher) culture. Japanese Cheeky are very expensive. Japan is the land of cute stuff! 🙂

      I’m so admired by you because you know about our subculture so well! I have no ideas about gacha at all even though my daughter likes some of them. I want to look at what the Japanese Cheeky looks like. I have to search it online.
      Yes, we love cute stuff, and Kawaii means cute in Japanese.
