The weather was great last Saturday so I went to Osaka Castle Park to take pictures. The Japanese love to do “hanami” or Sakura viewing, so the park was crowded. I couldn’t get decent photos of Sakura because some of the food stalls were placed near the trees. I think they spoil the beauty of the Sakura.
Last year, a couple of friends and I went to Kyoto for Sakura Hunting. Indeed, Kyoto is still far better than Osaka Castle Park for Sakura viewing. Anyway, here are my favorite close-up photos using my camera phone:
This wouldn’t be wordless anymore but I was just happy with the output of my phone camera’s macro mode. I’ve finally tried using this feature to take close-up shots of peach blossoms at Osaka Castle Park.

Inspite of the rain, a friend and I went to the Osaka Castle for Sakura viewing. We agreed that the rain might have dispersed the crowd there, and it did. Too bad there’s not much Sakura trees near the castle; too bad the Sakura trees were no longer in full bloom. Nonetheless, our little excursion was fun. ^-^ It was very hilarious seeing people hiding under under tents; some under any shade the castle grounds had to offer; instead of enjoying the party under the Sakura trees.
