Established amongst the natural beauty of the Meiji-no-Mori Minoh Quasi-National Park in 1953, the Insect Museum is a 15-minute walk up the "takimichi" waterfall path from Hankyu Minoh Station. Visitors will see familiar, local insects at the Minoh Park Insect Museum, as well as a varied selection of bugs you may never have seen before—beautiful bugs, cool bugs, strange bugs, and more. In the butterfly garden, visitors can enjoy the year-round sight of fluttering tropical butterflies that would normally only be found in Okinawa or on the islands off of Kyushu. On Sundays and holidays, the Insect Museum hosts insect petting zoo events (irregularly) that have proven to be popular with families. Continue up the waterfall path for another 30 minutes from the Insect Museum, and you'll arrive at Minoh Waterfall, famous for its beautiful greenery and autumn leaves.
