Minoh (箕面市 Minoo-shi?) is a city in Osaka Prefecture, Japan, about 15 km north of the centre of the city of Osaka. It is accessed by the Hankyu Railway about 30 minutes from Umeda Station. Its name is commonly romanized as "Minō" or "Minoo"; however the city government now officially uses the spelling Minoh in English.
The city was incorporated on December 1, 1956.
Minoh is best known for Meiji no Mori Minō Quasi-National Park, one of Japan's oldest national parks, which houses a large population of wild monkeys and has a picturesque waterfall. In autumn many people visit Minoh to see the colorful maple leaves.
Minoh has an IMAX movie theater.
