In 2004 I was in Osaka on holiday at the end of March / beginning of April and there were still some sakura around. It depends on the weather of course. There was a bit of a cold front so the flowers stayed for a week longer than we thought - which was very lucky. Hopefully you will be lucky too. The plum garden at Osaka Castle was totally bare, however!

I was in Tokyo for 6 nights (March 25-30) , and Osaka for another 6 nights . The weather was very pleasant in general. Daytime temperatures could reach over 20 degrees Celsius on a sunny day. It was a bit overcast for one or two days, and it rained lightly for almost one whole day in Osaka (so I spent the day going from shop to shop in Den-Den town, looking at the gadgets), and one evening in Tokyo.

Night temperature was not too bad - the night it was raining, I walked the several blocks throug Shinjuku from The Part Hyatt Hotel (featured in the movie Lost In Translation) to the Keio Plaza Intercontinental in a howling gale (the rain was almost falling sideways), and I didn't feel frozen. I think that for a European, the temperatures would be fairly mild.

The sakura in Ueno park were very nice in that last week of March, and also along the moat of the Osaka Castle about one week later - although on my day trip to Kyoto on the last day, most of the flowers were already gone. I also suggest taking a day trip from Osaka to Himeji, which is the most authentic castle remaining in all Japan. If you are lucky, the sakura in the grounds will also be blooming then and form a very scenic frame for the castle.

Sorry, mate, I've only stayed in the Kita (north) area of Osaka.

But I did find a travel site with a bit of information (including a rough map) here:

A difficult challenge ;)

Hello everybody!

I did not post for a long time, now I see a lot of amazing new pics, thanx! Osaka looks much better than I thought!

I have a dilemma: my parents will visit my in 2 weeks and we will make a domestic tour to Kyoto for 5 days. But we arrive in Kyoto at 13:45 and after we take a rest for lunch, the temples in Kyoto will be closed... so I decided to make a short half-day trip to Osaka.

I've never been there before, but I love skyscrapers, so I would like to get some advice on what to see in just half-day in the afternoon. Of course my parents would like to see Osaka castle, so Osaka business park and NHK Hall are all in the same area, right?

The pictures I like best are the very first ones in this thread, where are those buildings?

I guess the WTC is a little bit apart of Osaka castle and Dotombori, where I planned to have dinner.

What about Umeda Sky? I think it is well worth visiting, and it has a 1920's Osaka shopping mall in the basement, so it will make fun. But, are there any other attractions next to it? (I am not interested in temples, because Kyoto beats Osaka in that, ne?)

Sorry for the lot of questions, all suggestions will be wellcome.

Peace.

Osaka-jo, OBP and the NHK hall will take that half-day ensoku you are planning, I don't think you'll have time for much else.

Si me mandas un privao te cuento algo más Alita Ta luego.

Thanks

Thanks, Vapour!
Well, I was not thinking of entering Osaka-jo, because I've heard it is kind of a futuristic museum inside and I prefer visiting original old castles
Just take a walk aroud OBP, see the castle from outside and take a train to Umeda, about 18:00
In Umeda, visit the 1920's Osaka shopping mall and the observatory (if the sky is clear).
Finally, eat something in Dotombori about 20:00 and take a look around.
For me it is OK, maybe for my parents it is too much...
What would you people skip, Umeda or OBP? What do you like best? If it is raining, of course I would skip the Umeda observatory

Thanks for your advices!
