Upon reaching the Sakuranomiya JR (Osaka) station, the reports that the cherry blossoms (Sakura) were appearing slightly later than average this year proved quite true. However, pleasantly, my visit was not greeted with complete disappointment. While strolling through the Sakura Kema Sakuranomiya Park (毛馬桜之宮公園), I was elated when I spotted .. faintly .. here and there … a few peeping cherry blossoms, shyly unfolding their translucent pinkish wings … quietly whispering the beginning of the Sakura season .. for the Osaka region ..
With renewed determination … I quickened my steps and finally … right before me … in one end of the park, a lone sakura tree blooming prettily ….. and catching quite a few passersby’s admiration and smiling photo snaps indeed !!
