The Nishinomaru garden in Osaka, Japan, is an oasis and a natural reserve. More than 600 cherry trees, including the famous variety someiyoshino and about 95 different species of Japanese plants create a magical setting, which smooths visitors. Springs, ponds and trails that pass between the trees make beautiful landscape. The area is particularly popular in the spring when the cherry trees blossom dominate the landscape and the romantic atmosphere hovers everywhere.
The garden opened to the public in 1965 and is part of the former residence of the Japanese commander of the 16th century Toyotomi Hideyoshi. It covers an area of 64,000 square meters, with rich vegetation. The landscape changes from season to season and attracts many visitors throughout the year. While the spring garden is flooded by bright colors of the cherry blossoms, autumn leaves acquire beautiful colors.
