Hi Mary,

Sakura places can be found all around, especially in Nara park and temples around Kyoto. The best moment for Sakura viewing really depends on the time and weather. I'd suggest asking locally at your accommodation or a tourist information for the best spot.

As for travel between Osaka - Kyoto and Nara. All are connected by direct railways and getting around should be easy.

Enjoy Japan!
