Introduction to Osaka Kema Sakuranomiya Park
The riverbed park located between “Maumasaiyan” and “Tenman Bridge” is famous as a cherry blossom viewing spot. There are about 450 cherry blossom trees along the roadside.
The park on the east side of the river is full of cherry blossoms. The number of cherry blossoms is even more than that of the Mint, and when they are in full bloom, they are spectacular.

Osaka Kema Sakuranomiya Park Tips
The 4.2-kilometer-long “Okawa” cherry blossoms are the most distinctive feature of this park, and the many high-rise buildings next to it emphasize the urban feel of Moma Sakura-no-miya Park, making it a great place for an afternoon stroll surrounded by cherry blossoms. In addition to walking, you can also take the Osaka Minakami Bus, which offers a great view of the cherry blossoms along the “Okawa” River.
