Trying to find unique things to do in Osaka? Jump on a train and take a quick 30-minute ride out of the city to discover Minoo National Park. Full of lush, green trees, quaint waterfalls and Japan’s signature wooden red bridges, a trip to this natural oasis is a much-needed escape from bustling Osaka. Take a day to explore this serene part of the world. If you’re arriving by train, the main path leading out from Minoo Station towards the park will take you through beautiful paths lined with traditional buildings and temples along the scenic river. Be sure to try the park’s staple dish: fried maple leaves. Sold by small vendors on the side of the road, this crunchy Autumn snack is a unique way to end your day.
