Hiking by Nankai railways
Hiking courses that beginners can enjoy! Let’s join “Burari Healthy"
The season of autumn is a great time to go outdoors and enjoy the grace of nature. Red leaves are often said to be the best in autumn, but those are not the only flowers that blooms in this season. Today we'll feature beautiful flowers around Osaka to Wakayama.
Garden of Floral Culture
Garden of Floral Culture in Kawachinagano city located in southern Osaka is one of the best botanical gardens along Nankai Railways to enjoy flowers and plants from the season. We especially recommend you cosmoses and autumn roses to enjoy in during autumn. Gorgeous purple, pink and red gardens will make you feel the new season.
An autumn plant that represents the Japanese autumn season – Susuki. Japanese pampas grass, known as “Susuki” in Japan, is a plant that Japanese uses to celebrate “Chuushuu no Meigetsu（中秋の名月）”. “Chuushuu no Meigetsu” is a day to watch the beautiful autumn moon and celebrate harvest.
So how about going out and see this traditional plant? You can enjoy this great scenery on the top of Iwawakisan, where is one of the best fields in Japan to enjoy Susuki. The best season to watch Susuki is from October to November, which is also the best season to go out hiking.
Flowers from the bottom of Koya
Another great spot to enjoy cosmoses - Nantenen. Nantenen was an Onsen Ryokan (a Japanese style hotel with hot spring) for people going up the road to Koyasan. Today, many guests who wish to go up to Koyasan love stopping by at this spot.
The Japanese garden of Nantenen is huge – 10,000㎡ it is. Enjoy the nature from the mountains, and bathe inside Onsen which Japanese love.
