It is one hour 30 minutes by car from the Kyoto city. The suspension bridge in the forest at Hoshida garden of the citizen of Osaka is thrilling by the access that “the swing of the star” likes. Because I can take a walk while enjoying autumn colors on the promenade of the forest, I recommend it to autumn recreation.
Walk unhurried over the forest which is beautiful even if I come in any season
The natural park facilities “forest of the citizen of prefecture” which maintained a forest and facilities so that Osaka could get close to imminent, rich nature of Kongo Ikoma Kisen , National Monument Park in commemoration of prefectural administration 100 years. There is a wooden floor board suspension bridge largest in Japan in the one of the inside “Hoshida garden”.
I can walk approximately 50m in height, the height of the roof of the 10 stories building for a sense strolling in the air approximately 280m. That though I am reliable, as for bridge in itself, there is the person freezing up to a ground pitch difference to show from a woodcut and the gap of the floor.
In addition, the scenery is outstanding because every direction is surrounded on the mountain. It is green, and the trees which turned red and yellow color a step like a carpet in autumn in the summer.
There are close to the great forest walks and climbing wall
There is a lot of pleasure on the way before going to the suspension bridge. From a professional to a beginner, the place except the suspension bridge is full other than the wall climbing that many people use on the weekend such as the promenades which can enjoy the expression of the forest of the four seasons in a family and an elderly group, too. ※ Wall climbing is a leader companion required.From 2 months advance reservation is required.
You go for an outing a little from Kyoto, and enjoy a certain thrill autumn.
