I recently wrote about hiking during a Smith’s School of English Tsukaguchi Golden Week holiday here. Another place I went during the holiday was Minoh Waterfall in Minoh, Osaka Prefecture on May 6. From Hankyu Minoh Station, I walked along a road lined with shops and soon came to the start of a paved trail (Takimichi) in Meiji no Mori Minō Quasi-National Park. The trail leads all the way to Minoh Waterfall and follows Minoh River. There were people of all ages including families. The nature was very nice. At some points the trees on both sides of the trail touched on top, creating a kind of tree tunnel which was cool. It was an easy walk and it took me I believe less than 45 minutes to reach Minoh Waterfall. There were people of all ages including families. The waterfall itself was quite pretty. I paused there a bit after taking photos and had some chocolate and dried mango. Then I headed back to Hankyu Minoh Station the same way I’d come. On my way back, I bought Momiji tempura, Maple leaves deep fried in batter, a famous local sweet. I later enjoyed them with some students at Smith’s School of English Tsukaguchi.
Here’s a link to a video on my walk to Minoh Waterfall. Enjoy! (^.^) https://youtu.be/fDZunSL0F7Q
