I Love Katano - Discover Katano 交野の歩き方 since 2012



Thank you for coming to I Love Katano.

This is a private website to root for Katano City (Osaka, Japan). This website will introduce Katano City’s history, culture, latest events, and popular spots. I hope you enjoy them and have the interests in Katano City.

Although Katano City is an obscure city for even many Japanese as well as foreign travelers who visit Japan, it has a variety of original events and spots. I would like you to experience a quaint countryside of Japan in Katano City.

If interesting, please visit Katano City and discover something new.

I would be happy if this website is helpful for your travel to Japan.
