Minoh Waterfall

Hi guys! I went on a Momiji (maple leaves) hunting mission to Minoh Waterfall with my friend Caro a few weeks ago. Spring and the cherry blossoms are the most famous abroad, but Japanese people also love the red autumn leaves, especially Japanese Maple. My exchange programme is even called the Maple programme! 

When we went, it wasn't quite the right time for the perfect Kouyou, but apparently the maple leaves were bad this year... just my luck. 

On the way to the waterfall, we found Minoh's mascot- Yuzuru Kun! Caro loves him, so it was fun to take photos with him. Japan does cute so so well.



Then we set off on the walk to the waterfall! It's a really pleasant half an hour to an hour walk, and even though it was a lot more crowded than usual, it was still a relaxing walk.

The maple leaves were all at varying degrees of red, some were really vibrant, some were still green, and others were almost over already.







The waterfall area was the most crowded, obviously.


Behold, the power of cropping your image:




On the way back from the waterfall, I got Taiyaki:

If you're in Osaka and looking for a way out of the city and some nature, I'd recommend Minoh waterfall for sure. You can get to Minoh Station by train from Umeda on the Hankyu Minoh line, and the walk starts really close to the station.

Thanks for reading!
