Cherry blossoms in full bloom and the crowd
There were cherry blossoms of buds and them in full bloom. Anyway, there were a lot of people.
It is really crowded like Midosuji line (it is the most crowded subway in Osaka).
I thought that Japanese like cherry blossoms. Because of one way traffic and darkness, I could not see the pedestrian's face. But the majority of the words I heard were foreign languages.
People in all countries may like cherry blossoms.
From the hotel you can reach the exit of "Walkthrough of cherry blossom" at 10 minutes on foot.
It is 600 meters to the entrance when walking along the riverbed (It's fun to see food stalls, but it's too crowded, so you can not walk as you want). The walking time is over one hour.
If your aim is "cherry blossom viewing", daytime is recommended. Because cherry blossoms look beautiful in the daytime.
If your aim is not "cherry blossom viewing" but also "alcohol", it goes without saying that "night" is recommended.
