If you're looking for a nature trek away from the bustling Dotonbori and Namba, Minoo is the nearest place instead of taking a trip to Nara or Kyoto. Minoo Park is great during Autumn, as they sell local delights made out of Maple leaves - Maple ice cream, okonomiyaki, and Maple beer!

Actually initially this park was not in our itinerary. A friend who came back recently from Osaka showed us some pictures and I thought it was worth going to this park supposed to be the nearest National Park in Osaka. So we just slot in this destination after Osaka Castle as it is not far from here. From Osaka Castle, we walked to Tanimachiyonchome Station. We took the Tanimachi line to Higashi-Umeda Station and then walked to Osaka-Umeda Station. From this station, we switched to Takarazuka Main line to Ishibashi Handai-mai Station and again switched to Hankyu-Mino Line to go to Minoo Station. After walking 2.9 km, we were rewarded with a beautiful waterfall. This water fall is not very spectacular but it is the end destination for most of the tourists who visit the Minoo Park. We just want to enjoy some fresh air and to be with the nature. On the way, there are many traders selling fried maple leaf tempura. We bought some to try and it’s very crispy. There’s also an insect museum. Guess there must be a lot of different species of insects found in this park. But I didn’t see any visitor going in. But on the way, you can see some photographers with long zoom lens taking pictures. Most of the tourists going to this park are Japanese with some from mainland China and Taiwan. The trail to the waterfall is all paved tar road. So it’s very easy to climb. It’s very suitable for jogging and those outdoor activity enthusiasts. At the waterfall, there are stalls selling drinks, food especially grilled fish. The weather was good on that day, perfect for an outdoor trekking!

Minoo Park is an hour or so by train from Osaka Station. The Park I guess will be very pretty if you visit in Falls with the maple leaves turning color. Winter is a bit average though It is definitely a good exercise outdoor walk in Winter. Fresh air, wear a nice and comfortable shoes and walk the 2.4km to the waterfalls.

You can try the local fried maple leaves. The grilled salted Ayu definitely is one of the must try in the small resto near the waterfalls. If you enjoy ice cream in cold weather, don’t miss the chocolate peanuts ice cream served with crispy pancake.

Minoo Park is indeed one of the best spots to visit during maple season. The main attraction is the Minoo Falls at the end of the trails, about 1-hour walk from the Minoo Station. It takes about 35 minutes from Osaka/Umeda Station to Minoo Station via Hankyu Railway, making it the most easily accessible maple-appreciation spot around the Osaka area.

The trail starts from the station and all the way up to the falls with a flat road. On the way, there are multiple attractions for you to stop by, including insect museum, the statue of Noguchi Hideyo, Ryuanji Temple, Rock blocking parts of the way, and some restaurants along the river. There are multiple restrooms along the way so there is no need to worry about it.

Minoo Falls is magnificent and beautiful, and there are benches and resting areas there for you to appreciate both the maples and falls at the same time, tasting some Japanese snacks like grilled fish or fried chicken. Be sure to try some deep-fried maple leaves on your way back. It's sweet, crunchy, and quite enjoyable. There is one complimentary foot spa for you to relax for a while before getting on the train back to Osaka.

We visited Minoo Park after a morning rain so it was a cold overcast afternoon. The autumn colors were stunning we couldn’t stop taking pictures along the 2.8 km uphill path going to the Minoo waterfalls. It was my 5th time in the Kansai area so we decided to go “off the beaten path” and it was all worth it. If you stay in Northern Osaka this is just a 15 minute train ride to the outskirts. It was so easy to find, we saw the signs as soon as we got off the train. It was a serene and pretty place with crisp clean air. I would love to go back on a sunny day though.

A lovely park that is relatively free from hordes of tourists, with several trails and a 2.4km walk to the waterfall. Has several rest stops and shops selling food and souveneirs, and an onsen. A great place for a little getaway.

It is a long walk from Minoh train station to Minoo waterfall, which is the main attraction of Minoo Park, which is about 3km. You can just take a leisure hike and enjoy the surrounding scenery with lovely trees and flowing clear river around you. If you are lucky you can see the resident red-faced monkeys in Minoo park. We were told that maple leaf tempura is the local delicacy, but we found that there is nothing special about it because practically it is only maple leaf covered with tempura batter.

We had a chance to visit this place as we were dining in a restaurant in this area. The are is so quiet with only a few visitors at a time (this place is about an hour away from Osaka Prefecture). The weather was just right, not too cold. The traditional structures are well preserved (they are now either restaurants or hotels). I would recommend visiting this place to stroll around and enjoy what Japan was before being urbanized (like Tokyo and Osaka).

Lovely but long walk to the waterfall. Best to go early as there are less people. Best to get the maple leaves from the shops when u first start walking because they sell the small pack for 100 yen. Up at the waterfall are all much bigger packets. Beautiful maple trees as you walked up.
