Let's enjoy the autumn colors in Minoo,Osaka : )

This is Haru from Osaka Hana Hostel : )

The season has completely changed to Autumn.
Autumn is a very beautiful season that we can see colored leaves.
Osaka has a good place to see autumn leaves, so I would like to recommend it to you.

【Minoo Park 】


Minoo Park is a forested valley on the outskirts of Osaka, located the north of the urban sprawl.
During the fall, it is one of the best places in the Kansai Region to see the autumn colors in a natural setting.

Minoo Park is a popular destination for hikers so you can enjoy hiking in a natural beauty.
The trail begins near Hankyu Minoo Station and leads to the Minoo waterfall(height of 33 meters).
This waterfall is the main natural attraction of this park!!

Minoo park can be reached in less than 1hour from Shinsaibashi station.
From Minoo station to the waterfall, it takes about 45 minutes by walk for one way.

The first half of the trail passes by several shops, temples and other facilities, while the later half is a bit steeper and surrounded by trees.

1. Please take Midousuji Line from Shinsaibashi Station to Umeda station(240yen)
2. Then, please go to Hankyu Umeda station and take Hankyu Takarazuka Line to Ishibashi Sation (15 minutes) and transfer to the Hankyu Minoo Line to Minoo Station (5 minutes).
From Hankyu Umeda Station, the entire one way trip takes about 25 minutes, costs 270 yen.
There are frequent connections.
