Osaka might a buzzing urban metropolis, but there is no shortage of beautifully maintained parks where you can experience some outdoor fun in the heart of the city.

Recommended Seasonal Spot



Mount Kongo
looms over the border between Osaka and Nara Prefectures
at an elevation of 1,125 meters.

One of Kansai’s best hiking spots for enjoying seasonal scenery.
Even beginners at hiking can jump to the summit using the ropeway!
In winter, the mountains present beautiful snowy scenes and frost-coated trees.
Be sure to prepare for a winter mountain climb when you visit,
with climbing irons and cold-weather gear.
