2018 Cherry Blossom Viewing at Japan Mint began today. Many kinds of cherry blossoms are planted in the site of Japan Mint and the lane is opened to show them in this season – from today to April 17 this year. Although the best season to see SOMEIYOHINO, the most popular cherry blossom, was over, we can enjoy beautiful blossoms because many trees which bloom later than SOMEIYOHINO.
This annual event began in 1883. Then Japan Mint became one of the most popular place to view cherry blossom.
I went there today. Although the weather wasn’t good, a lot of people including foreign visitors visited there and enjoyed them.
Many stalls opened next to Japan Mint. The atmosphere was very pleasant.
The closest station is TEMMABASHI(天満橋) of KEIHAN(京阪) line or OSAKA METRO.
It opens from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm on weekdays and from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm on the weekend.
