Osaka Mint Sakura

A day off and a trip to the Osaka Mint where they have a Sakura garden which opens for about one week each year to show off the flowers.  The weather was immaculate and there were hundreds and hundreds of people.  A pleasure to see the beauty of spring and to celebrate it with so many others.
