Located near Hoshida Shopping Street, where the legend of the starry village still remains, is the so-called "Hoshida Forest (Hoshida Garden)" surrounded by nature. Here you can find the "Star Swing" which allows you to walk across the sky.

Hoshi no Buranko is a wooden deck suspension bridge that is 180 meters above sea level, 280 meters long, and 50 meters above ground. It is one of the largest pedestrian suspension bridges in Japan.

The shortest route to the Star Swing is to follow the hiking trail called "Boken no michi" from the "Piton no koya" information center inside Hoshida Park.

We cross the suspension bridge and are moved by the pleasant breeze and the breathtaking 360-degree view of the forest of Hoshida Park.

The "Star Swing" has become a symbol of the starry village. Why not take a stroll through the sky as if you were crossing the Milky Way?

Please use "Eeyan! Osaka Shopping Streets" to discover new aspects of shopping streets you didn't know about or your local shopping street, and to have wonderful encounters with shopping streets.
