Ikeda Forest Trail hike (+ Entry to Ikeda Castle)
This trek crosses right across from Ikeda up the mountain side and then loops around. Its a great hike but can be completed by anyone with an average level of fitness.
Lets escape the bustle of Osaka and feel the serenity and peacefulness of an easy paced, winding trek through the hills of ikeda.

Unbelievable scenery, I bet the Japanese people who come on this hike will be surprised about this BEAUTY and DIVERSITY of plant/tree life that they have never known in their own city!!!!!
We will start of with the tiny Ikeda castle and surrounding gardens then move on the the thick forest while having a good chat with new friends!!!
“The first few kilometers in Satsukiyama Park are cozy and has an interesting tower and some nice views along the way. At the end it becomes more dense and inviting.”
