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.

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 small bridge (and probably lots of people), the walk is about 3 km long.

What is there to do?

  • There will be night forest yoga on selective days (Nov. 18, 19, 26, and Dec. 4) about 5 minutes on foot from Hankyu Minoo Station for ¥1,200.
  • Minō falls and Katsuo-ji are illuminated during early evening on weekends and holidays between Nov. 12 and Dec. 4 (from sunset until 8:30 p.m.); transport is limited, so plan ahead.
  • There will be a number of bus tours (¥1,500) to see the main sights leaving from Minō Station.
  • How to get there?

    From Umeda Station, take the Takarazuka Line to Ishibashi, then change to the Minō Line, getting off at Minō Station; it takes just under 30 minutes and costs ¥270.
