Beautiful picture, but more beautiful if I was there. I visited Osaka Castle in June 2007. Osaka was a happening city - vibrant and full of life. I'd love to visit Japan to see the beauty of the cherry blossoms.

It has been a few years since I have last visited Japan. My wife Motoko, whom I visited in japan in 2005 & 2006 took me to Osaka Castle. Unfortunately it was in the winter and I could not enjoy the beauty of the cherry blossoms. I miss japan very much and I want to return there and visit again. I consider it my second home and feel homesick when I look at pictures like this. Hisashiburi Osaka:(

My favorite part of sakura season is the surrealism of 'pink trees'. So beautiful yet so fleeting; all too soon the green leaves take over and you're left with just a tree. This image is so beautiful I just gotta bust out singing .... "Sakura, sakura, kiiro no sora wa...."

Another select view. I just know there are thousands of people milling about all looking for a place to set down and picnic until it is just a sea of blue tarps. Nice pic, but a view I would probably detest in person because of all the peeps. Go plummeting birth rate!

I envy to everyone who could see such a beauty alive. Moscow spring is still delayed. Very cold and windy.

Now that's they've cleared out the urban campers, Osaka Castle Park has turned into a pretty nice place.

Osaka-jo is nice especially during this time of year. But nothing can top Himeji-jo; at any time of year.
