April 4, 2015 - Osaka Sakuranomiya Park and Okayama Korakuen Garden

As shinkasen to Okayama was departing in ~1 hour,
I have decided to walk throught Sakuranomiya Park in spare time.

Petals starting to fall at Osaka

Sakuranomiya Park stretches along Okawa River for several kilomerters.
Nearly 5000 cherry trees line along river banks and recreation grounds

As day was starting quite warm, many residents were using
both park and river for recreation

View from bridge, Mint Bureau on right bank

After 46 min ride with "NOZOMI" shinkansen I have arrived at Okayama Station.
