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.


Caution: Epidemic of Meales

The sign of the epidemic of Meales is appearing in Osaka now. It has been reported that 253 people were infected with meales throughout Japan since this January. Although the number of people infected with meales in Osaka was 15 last year, 18 people already got it as of April 9th.

To protect you and your family from meales, vassination is very effective.

If you have babies aged 0ne to less than two, please take a free vassination service provided by Osaka prefectual government.
