Minō Momiji Festival


Get the most out of Osaka in autumn by visiting the Minō area in November and seeing the red and yellow leaves lit up.

What to expect

One of the most popular spots for an afternoon out in Osaka, Minō Park is a soft hike along a river with a few bonus spots along the way. Ending in the picturesque view of Minō Falls, complete with a small bridge (and probably lots of people), the walk is about 3 km long.

  • There will be night forest yoga on selective days (Nov. 11m 18, 23, 25, and Dec. 4) about 5 minutes on foot from Hankyu Minoo Station for ¥1,500.
