2014 May: Japan: Osaka: Tsurumi Ryokuchi Park

Travel Date: May 19. 2014
Location: Tsurumi Ryokuchi Park, Osaka

Humbling experience to see the locals running along with their bikes, the kids playing along the sprinklers and water, ajumma and ajusshi hold their hands while walking.  


After a 10-15 minute walk in lush greenery, it is so much surprising to see this at the end of the road.


Entering the rose garden...




I wanna make you smile, Whenever you're sad
Carry You around when, Your arthritis is bad...
Give you my coat, When you are cold...
oh all i wanna do, Is grow old with you...
(written by Adam Sandler and Tim Herlihy)
