Cherry blossoms at Osaka castle

Osaka Castle is located in the center of Osaka city as a symbol and popular sightseeing spot.
It one of the most famous place for cherry blossoms in Osaka.
I went there at 2 April 2015.
Cherry trees were fully bloomed and it was best timing to see them.

At first I left my stuff in the coin-operated locker in Osaka station.
They have a lot of lockers in the building so it wasn’t hard to find them.
Then I got on the JR line and headed to Osakajo Koen station.
