Plumb Flowers in Full Bloom

Now in Japan four warm days after three cold days repeat again.   About 100 kinds of 1,270 plumb trees are planted in Osaka Castle Park.  You can enjoy colorful flowers in full bloom including rose and white.  Plumb blossoms give us the harbinger of Spring.  We can't wait for Spring.

Osaka Castle's first stone walls are now under excavation

  Toyotomi Hideyoshi first built Osaka Castle in 1585. Next Tokugawa attacked, defeated Toyotomi in 1615.  At that time Tokugawa was going to destroy Toyotomi's stone walls and newly pile up the stones.    However, when Tokugawa came to the castle, he judged that it was faster to burry Toyotomi's stone walls than to destroy them. So Toyotomi's stone walls were burried under the ground.

  And recently first stone walls have been discovered and now under excavation.
This February It has been specially open to the public.
