After enjoying Mino Park, walk back along the Takimichi path to the station. The dynamic bare concrete building sticking out of Mt. Mino is the Hotel Minoh Osaka, established in 1951. A straight lift to the top by an observation elevator will take you to a scenic sky walkway, leading into the hotel, dazzlingly decorated in Japanese style but somehow giving off a nostalgic air. As a large-scale modernism construction designed by Sakakura Associates, the hotel is now noted as an architectural structure. The highlight here is surely the open-air bath, taking advantage of the location. The magnificent view looking down from Mt. Mino becomes even more beautiful and romantic at night. After a full day's activity, wind down your worn-out body in the hot water surrounded by nature. The quality of the spring water makes the skin beautiful and smooth.
