Minoo Park, Mino

Park · Nature / Park
An easy hike along the riverside trail in Minoo Park leads to a picturesque waterfall, plunging 33 m (108 ft) into the river below. Early on along the path, you'll pass temples, shops, and other facilities, before the trail becomes more verdant and less developed. Expect to take about 45 minutes to walk each way, and bring along some water and a snack with you. Look out for the insectarium on site, and the various other paths that lead off to viewpoints around the park. If visiting in fall, you'll see radiant autumnal colors and can try the novel seasonal treat of deep-fried maple leaves.

  • Great experience! One can choose more difficult routes or the main road if one just wants to see the waterfall. Highly recommend also visiting the insect museum with the butterfly garden! If you're in for some exercise, take a right turn at the shrine and climb the stairs to the view point (about 300m altitude).
  • A lovely walk to the waterfall. It was cold and raining a bit when I went but it was still worth it. There’s a dozen places that sell the tempura maple leaves on the street leading up to the walk from the train station so don’t fall for the trap of just buying from the first one - they all have their own style.
