The grounds of the Japan Mint contain many different varieties of flowering cherry trees. Every year, during the cherry blossom (sakura) season, a path through its grounds approximately 560 m long is opened to the public for cherry blossom viewing. This event is known as “Sakura-no-toorinuke,” literally meaning walking through the cherry blossom, because people walk along a one-way path while viewing the cherry blossoms. Since its inception in 1883, it has remained popular as one of Osaka’s best-loved spring traditions.

The cherry blossom of the year is “Otemari," (Japanese snowball tree) with many light pink flowers blooming densely at the tip of the branch. Otemari is a very rare kind of cherry (Sakura), not seen in many other locations. Instead of single flowers, the Otemari tree features ball shaped bunches of flowers.

Highly limited and hard to find outside of Japan, this set is limited to 14,000 sets issued - but ONLY 250 sets are earmarked for markets outside of Japan!!
