Was at the Mint Museum to see the cherry blossoms. When I was in Osaka the flowers were off peak already but there were a few still blooming trees at the Mint Museum.

Best part is, it costs you nothing!! For those history buffs you’ll love this, it was a great setting next to the river. The staff were friendly and had good English.

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.
