The Takatsuki Forest Center, managed by the Osaka Prefecture Forest Owners Association, is a hands-on facility to designed for appreciating nature in the mountains. The center has an accommodation facility, restaurant, craft center, and shiitake mushroom center, as well as the recreational space Yamabiko-no-mori (echo forest). Kashida Onsen (hot spring) is located in this center. Kashida Onsen features a comfortable spacious bath decorated with natural rocks, and is popular among people who want to achieve smooth skin. Admiring the lush scenery from the bath, guests can feel as if they were taking a relaxing walk in the forest. Fireflies can be observed in summer.
