Minoo Park

Reviewed By jan1ce_csh - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Definitely worth the visit and the walk to experience the fresh air and the lovely autumn leaves. Unfortunately the area to the waterfall was closed when we visited. Still, it was such a lovely park and your young children will love exploring and running wild here with supervision.
Do try eating the fried autumn leaves being sold by the shops along the streets on the way in - pretty nice.

Waterfall of Mino

Reviewed By Kenji Y - Osaka, Japan

Unbelievable views for the price of nothing.
Super easy walk on the slight incline heading throught the mountain side along a trickling river. youll pass a butterfly garden, insect museum, old mine areas and quaint, traditional shops, and much more along the way.
Osakas piece of heaven.
Best place in Osaka for me:)

Katsuo-ji Temple

Reviewed By mike g - Burleigh Heads, Australia

If you are looking for a fascinating attraction without the usual dozens of tour buses and their hundreds of passengers, don’t miss the 1,300-year-old Katsuo-Ji Temple - known as the “temple of the winner’s luck” - in a forested hillside of Mino City, on the northern outskirts of Osaka.
This is where people go to pray for success in any number of personal endeavours (school, business, health, sports, arts, etc.).
Having gone public (if only to yourself) with your winning aim – perhaps with the purchase of a “daruma” (tumbling doll), and especially if you choose a large one on which you write your name, address, next age and your winning goal – “everything depends on how much you can win for yourself,” a local guide said – in other words, how much effort you will put into the project.
Hundreds – probably more like thousands – of the egg-sized wooden darumas have been placed all around the temples and grounds. Every new year they are gathered up and burned, their smoke wafting up into the heavens. People pay from a few dollars to several thousand dollars depending on the size.
“Prayers for winner’s luck and also memorial services for ancestors, unborn babies and pets are offered every day,” the guide told us.
The guide from reception kindly showed us around the forested hillside location. A monk at the temple then helped us with painting the winning goal on small pumpkin-sized darumas and with the subsequent blessing.
Light refreshments and a variety of souvenirs are available. Expect an uplifting feeling from your visit and, hopefully, the motivation to achieve success in your goal by drawing on Katsuo-Ji Temple’s spiritual energy.

Ryuanji is a temple, which is located in the halfway from Hankyu Mino station to Mino Waterfall. The temple itself is not something special, but its red bridge over a river is a nice spot for taking pictures.

Mino Park Museum of Insects

Reviewed By mike g - Burleigh Heads, Australia

the bugs inside the museum - some pinned, some very alive - are interesting.
but the best part is the small butterfly garden where the butterflies flutter by all around you without fear, often alighting on flowers or a feeding tray as they display their beautful and delicate wings. one of the more memorable experiences.

モノレールが「伊丹空港」から門真市まで各駅で千里中央を真ん中において開業しているのは、知る人ぞ知るだが、大阪大学病院前にも枝分かれしてレールがある。そこまでで充分なのだが、箕面の粟生(あわお)の山間部を切り開いてそこを「彩都(さいと)」と称した総合大都市を造成した。研究所や広大なマンション群、宅地をどんどん建立して造成した。遂には、モノレールを大阪大学病院前からこの「彩都」まで通して人口増加を図った。そして大公園「彩都なないろ公園」まで造成して造ったのだが…。

Mino City History Museum

Reviewed By ykamachi - Mino, Japan

阪急箕面駅の駅前と言ってもサンプラザビルの地下には、大半の方は行ったことがない。そんな場所に箕面の郷土館があるとは知る人ぞ知るだった。箕面市の行政には長年住んでいて何も申し上げなかったが周辺の市の行政と比較すれば何かちぐはぐを感じるのは「こんな展示の仕方なんか」も代表的だ。団塊世代が中心になる世の中では昭和のレトロ感などは、メイプルホール内などに移して宣伝するべきではないだろうか?*別件だが池田市にも豊中市にも市営の立派な室内プールがある。箕面市にはそれが無いのだ体育館やスポーツ競技施設なんかはたくさんあるがなぜないのか?

Mino Visitor Center

Reviewed By ykamachi - Mino, Japan

徒歩で山歩きする際の休憩場所だった。駐車場もあったので車も休憩場所だった。茶店があって熱いおしるこやおでんも売っていた。売店では、茶菓子や缶コーヒーもあった。ここ数年前より売店がなくなって駐車場も解体された。単なる空き地になっている。
