Minoh hike

Another trip I made in November was going to Minoh.  MInoh has a little trail surrounded by shops, an onsen and a lot of trees.  Since it the leaves’ color were changing, it was one of the places I wanted to visit.  The walk itself took around 20-30 minutes and It was a beautiful day out, so it was perfect.  I had the pleasure of tasting Minoh’s beer—the only crafted beer in Osaka.  It was really good and that’s saying something because I hate dark beer.

Here are some pictures of the walk:

 

 

 

 

 

At the end of the walk, you are welcomed by a nice waterfall:

 

We ate lunch and headed back.  On the way back I noticed a ridiculous dog wearing jeans and suspenders.  This shit is an everyday occurrence in Japan, and yet I still get surprised every time I see a dog wearing some sort of silly outfit.  Poor doggies:

While looking at the Minoh map, we noticed that the first Mr. Donut was built by the station. Mr. Donut is Japan’s Dunkin Donuts/Krispy Kreme.  I think Mr. Donut has a lot more variety in donuts compared to American donut places and they are dirt cheap.  Most go from 100-200 yen.  Some people are really addicted to Mr. Donut—luckily I am not one of them.  It was hilarious though how excited we were to see the first Mr. Donut; I would even say some considered that the highlight of the trip (sad, I know):

On the way back, the sun was setting once again.  I took a picture while on the train, it was really pretty:
