Just 30 mins Train from Osaka station, You will be in a completely natural world with mountain and beautiful maple forest.
Mino is really my favorite place for refreshment. Air is clear, time flew slower than the town.

You can enjoy peaceful walking along the scenic river. In spring with splendid cherry blossom, In May, June with vivid new green, In Summer you may see children playing at the river, In Autumn with colored foliage. Even in wintertime, you can enjoy perfectly clear air.

On the way, you can see several beautiful shrines, photogenic bridges, some hidden paths where I usually stop by. Every single place is so refreshing and makes you relaxed. Especially thousand of Maple tree area is something special. If you need it, I can teach a good way of walking in the mountain area and be able to give nature guidance as a mountain guide.
