Tour the facility that produces Japanese coins and medals of honor and visit the historic coinage museum year-round. If you visit during the spring, you might catch the cherry blossoms on the Mint's 400 cherry trees.

I was lucky to be there at the right moment to admire the cherry blossom. It is uncredible to see so many different types of beautiful flowers.

We didn't visit the Mint, but we took full advantage of the week when they open up their gates for everyone to meander along the long path admiring their extensive range of late blooming cherry blossoms. If you are in town at the right time,...More

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.
