Video thumbnail

Minoh Falls in Osaka is believed to have been home to Ryujin (Dragon God) since ancient times.

In Japan, the dragon is worshiped as a spirit that brings happiness and better fortune.

On one colorful autumn day, we were guided by Ryujin to three temples in the Minoh Forests, renowned for bringing good luck at winning, building a fortune, and finding a good match.

The fierce and tranquil Buddhist statues, the fantastic and attractive sight of Katsuoji Temple, and finally, the glittering, immense night view proved really impressive!

Discover the charms of the Minoh Forests, located just 30 minutes from Osaka City.
