Minoh Park For those who plan to enjoy walking in the park, the best access is by train. The road to the waterfall is flanked with many shops including those selling tempura of maple leaves or sweet buns in the shape of a maple leaf. In November, the park is autumn-tinted and alive with visitors. However, since the park is located in the suburbs of the city of Osaka and its average temperature is about 5 degrees below that of Osaka, many people visit the park to enjoy the nature in summer. Destruction of animal life in the park has been forbidden, so its nature remains intact. There are many kinds of insects, birds and plants. Care must be taken to preserve the nature of the park because it is an invaluable suburban refreshing spot for Kansai residents.
Feeding the wild monkeys is prohibited, as is littering. Visitors to the park who come by car may be caught in a traffic congestion. There are two municipal parking lots 2 km north of the Makiochi intersection.
