sakura walk

Yesterday I went to check out the cherry blossoms around the Osaka Castle area. It was quite overcast.

I started at Naniwanomiya Park.

This park which I stumbled upon a couple years ago, was once the property of the Naniwa Palace. If you are interested there is more info on the property here.

I had picked up several snacks from Boulangerie Lien to enjoy at the park.

This custard filled cream pan...was still a little warm, so good!

And this sweet chili sausage bread.

Chewy baguette filled with a snappy sausage and coated with sweet chili sauce...this was messy but good.

As I was sitting and taking in the scenery, I noticed this man who had a tree all to himself.

I then walked the perimeter of the Osaka Castle property.

Even though this photo doesn't show it, there were tons of people taking in the blossoms.

And then I made my way to the Oogawa, a large river in Osaka that has cherry blossom trees on both sides...for a panorama pic.

Lots of walking, and even though it was overcast, it was still nice to be out and about.
