  • Minoo Onsen
    Osaka Minoo-shi Onsencho
    This hot spring district, designated as Meiji no mori Mino Quasi-national Park, is surrounded by natural beauty, and the skytop outdoor bath operated by the district's sole hotel offers a sweeping view of Osaka Plain. The hot spring waters here are some of the best in the Kansai region; a certified recuperative spring, it is also known as the Hot Spring of Life. This distinctive sodium bicarbonate chloride spring (formerly deemed a sodium chloride-containing sodium bicarbonate boric acid spring) is said to treat such ailments as neurasthenia, chronic women's diseases, nerve pain, and rheumatism, in addition to engendering beautiful skin. The city of Minoh is a renowned fall foliage destination, and in the autumn the foliage found in Meiji no mori Mino Quasi-national Park is particularly spectacular; Minoh Waterfall, located inside the park, has been selected as one of Japan's 100 most beautiful waterfalls. Tourism attractions such as Expo'70 Commemorative Park, the location of the famous Tower of the Sun art installation, are also located nearby, and the district makes an excellent place from which to base area sightseeing activities.

  • Inunakiyama Onsen
    Osaka Izumisano-shi Ogi
    Situated at the foot of Mt. Inunaki and surrounded by natural beauty, this secluded hot spring district is located a one hour drive from Osaka. The traditions of the district date back to the Nanboku-cho period (1336-1392) and despite its distance from the city it is popular with many thanks to its secluded mountain atmosphere. The waters of the area's hydrogen carbonate springs are said to treat such ailments as nerve pain, rheumatism, gastrointestinal disorders, and diabetes. Mt. Inunaki is famous for the picturesque valley beneath it and the beauty of the area's fall foliage, which is particularly along the approach to the Shipporyuji temple. After enjoying the area's natural beauty through hiking courses in Natural Monument-designated beech forest and Okuyama Ameyama Nature Park, nothing beats a relaxing hot spring soak. Visitors can find hot spring lodging facilities, public bathhouses, and day trip bathhouses in the area.
