This beautiful waterfront park in Izumisano City is located right next to the Kansai Airport, making it a popular route for business people and tourists traveling to and from Osaka. It’s also considered one of the best sunset locations in Japan — perfect for an evening run! Starting from the north end of the park, runners can tackle ~7 km or ~11 km options. The best option is to start at Rinku Park and head south along the waterfront paths. For the shorter option, turn around just after the bridge to Tajira. For the longer option, turn around at the Rinkuminamihama Beaches, near Aeon Mall.
