Osaka, Japan

Yodo River

Another favorite running location for uninterrupted waterfront views is the dike of the Yodo River, the largest waterway in Osaka. The continuous path here offers a flat and expansive running track, although runners should be prepared for high winds at times. While it’s possible to hop on the path at any point along the way, the most popular and accessible area is from near Taishibashi-Imaichi Station heading north. Runners can either loop back on one of the bridges, or continue north one way to another station.
