    Herons and cranes of the Kamogawa river

    Still looking for a date spot? Try taking a stroll though the Plum Orchard in Osaka Castle Park this month. Throughout February and March the orchard comes alive with hues of pink, red and white as the some 100 varieties of plum trees blossom. Can get very crowded on the weekends
