    Osaka Minoshi Minokouen
    This 33-meter-tall waterfall was chosen as one of Japan’s 100 most beautiful waterfalls. It is located inside Meiji no Mori Mino Quasi-National Park in Minoh City, Osaka Prefecture. Known as a popular fall foliage spot, many visitors come during the autumn season. There is a “waterfall walkway” approximately 2.8 kilometers long that starts in front of Minoh Station and offers wonderful views of the natural forests of Osaka. The fall foliage is best from mid-November through the beginning of December. In the middle of the walkway is the Mino Park Museum of Insects, another popular spot.
  • 48 Waterfalls of Takihata

    Osaka Kawachinaganoshi Takihata
    They are about 15 minutes on foot from the last stop of the Nankai Bus going to Takihata Dam. In the ravine around Takihata, there are many steep rock surfaces, and the water flowing from Mt. Iwawaki and Mt. Minami Katsuragi become waterfalls. These waterfalls are collectively called the 48 Waterfalls of Takihata. In addition, it is also a scenic spot well known as a secret area since the natural environment is preserved and has not been altered by people. Kotaki, located in the upper reaches of Konanji Temple, is the largest, and the area is a popular outdoor spot because there is also a camping ground nearby. Takihata Dam is downstream, and together the site has been chosen as one of Osaka's top 100 green landscapes.
