If you come to Osaka, be sure to visit Osaka-jo Castle Park. There are many places worthy to see besides the castle! Yuko's travel@OSAKA series for your visiting Osaka guided by Yuko, this time Yuko will take an unforgettable sightseeing spot with Oliver in Osaka Castle Park. And at the end of the article, there will also be a lecture on Osaka dialect! O)Hey, Yuko! It is too bad, the weather doesn't look very good today Y)Yeah, but even on such a day, we also need to have a good time, Oliver. It’s very cold, pay attention to keep warm, don’t catch a cold. O)Well, I am fully prepared for the cold protection! Where are we going today? Y)Let's go to Osaka Castle Park today. Arrival of Osaka Castle Park) 5 minutes walk from Tanimachi 4-chome Station of Osaka Metro Tanimachi Line or Morinomiya Station and Osakajo Koen Station of JR Osaka Loop Line. O)Is it the park with a big castle?  I have just learned it at school! It is the castle built by Toyotomi Hideyoshi to unify the whole country.  Y)Yeah, but today's goal is actually not this castle. Instead, we are going to watch "something" that is now very worthy to visit. O)The thing worthy to watch now? What is it? Y)Hoho, you will find it out when you get there. To wait for that, Oliver, look at this map! Osaka Castle Park is very big, we need to walk a lot! O)Look, Yuko, so many people running in the park. Y)Osaka Castle Park is also very popular as a running route. Many marathon events will be held from time to time. O)If the weather is good, the mood will be better! Y)Yes! Then you see that they are the cherry trees trees on both sides. There are about 300 cherry trees in Osaka Castle Park, so it is also a famous cherry blossom attraction. Today we are going to see "something" that is more 1270 than these cherry trees. Y)Oliver, you can see it in the distance! O)We have got a long way! So tired! Osaka Castle Park is so big, I didn’t feel it when I saw the map. Y)Those are the "thing" of the 1270 trees! O)Which variety are those trees? Y)Let's take a closer look. Y)Osaka bairin, this is where we want to go! O)Oh, so they are the plum trees. But it seems that it is not the best time for blossom. Y)Yes, because it is from the end of February to the beginning of March which is the best viewing period of plum blossoms, maybe we come earlier. But, some plum blossoms have bloomed very well! O)Yeah, they are so beautiful, and look like sakura, but they are somehow different. Y)You can watch more than 100 kinds of plums in Osaka Castle Park, their colors and shapes are not the same, so it is very interesting to watch them while comparing them. Oliver, look, we can find Osaka-jo Castle here. O)Toyotomi Hideyoshi should have looked at the bairin here for the Tenshukaku. The scenery when all the plum blossoms must be definitely unbeatable beauty. O)Then, Yuko, what are the small wooden cards hanging on these plum trees? Y)These are the tankas  that are sung with the theme of plum blossoms. Tanka is a kind of waka which lyrically express people's mood and situation with the syllable of 5・7・5・7・7. When the format is 5・7・5, it shall be called haiku. O)Oh-oh, it feels a little difficult for me... Y)We rarely come here, let's go to see the Osaka-jo Castle. O)Wow, if looks the Osaka-jo Castle closely, it is really extraordinary! Magnificent, so beautiful! Y)There is also a historical museum, where you can see the historical materials that were very precious at the time. I think the sword and armor are also on display. We can also climb on the Tenshukaku! O)Yuko, let's come here again when the sakura bloom well! It must be very magnificent when looking at the sakura from Tenshukaku! Y)Yeah, when it is warmer, we will come here again, Oliver. Today's Osaka dialect "Oton Okan" In the Osaka dialect, "Oton" means father while "Okan" means mother. In addition to the Osaka dialect, the Japanese often call their father "Oyaji" and call their mother "Ofukuro".
