Way too hot for this activity. It's a bit out of the way and once you get there it's a little disappointing. Our guide explained that Cherry blossom season is the best time to visit. Never mind, maybe next time.

This is the first and only place I did hanami (blossom viewing) while I was in Japan, simply to get the experience of having done it. I'd say it's worth doing once and there are a lot of pretty trees here, but having to move...More

Visit it during the only week it is open in the year. Every year the week is slightly different depends on the sakura bloosom.

Japan Mint is not only famous for its minting, but also for its cherry trees. At the beginning of April, the flowering time of cherry, many Japanese people visit here for cherry blossom viewing. To avoid a crush, the visitors are allowed to walk through...More

Hi, I will be visiting Osaka at the middle of March and I don't think I will be able to catch the cherry blossom season, but will it be worth it to still pay Zohei Museum (Mint Museum)'s garden a visit? As I know the entrance is free during cherry blossom season for a week, but how about prior to the cherry blossom season, is there any entrance fees? Note, I am not so interested with the Museum itself.

Guide tour is held at the Museum. Mainly inside of the museum, So garden walk during the season of Cherry blossom walk thru is not expected.

There is 3km from JR Osaka station to the destination. Alternative plane is use Tanimachi-subway from Higashi-umeda to Higashi-morimachi, and the walk 15 min. Near by you can see Osaka-jou castle.
