Toyonaka, a quiet town close to the city center

Stay there and live like locals! If you are planning a trip to Japan and looking for something not too touristy, visiting Toyonaka is a good idea. There is a big park (Hattori Ryokuchi Park), where you can enjoy jogging through a grove. There is also a museum called “Open-Air Museum of Old Japanese Farmhouses“. Also, if you go to “Senri River Bank“, you can take a really beautiful photo very close to aircraft. Also, visiting a small shopping market street and getting know locals may be a fun idea.


There is a spot where you can take this type of photo

Travel Tips

If you are looking for an accommodation in Osaka close to Itami Airport, a homestay may be a good idea! Stay at “roundabout”, an Air b&b accommodation, and it’s really nice! It’s also very close to Sakurazuka Shopping Market! The host can also show you around the town!
