There are many barbecue places in the outskirts of Osaka where families can have a great time. Here are five recommended barbecue spots in the area.

1. Barbecue Garden – Orchard Grass

Located in one corner of Maishima Sports Island, a 20-minute drive from the center of Osaka, Orchard Grass is a barbecue spot where everything from preparations up to the disposal of garbage is handled by the staff. Here, the tebura (“empty-handed”) set (2,000 – 3,500 JPY per person (incl. tax)) is what’s popular. They also offer great-value sets that come with an all-you-can-drink service on weekdays! (Bringing in outside food and drinks is not allowed.) On hot, sunny afternoons, they have tent seats (+1,100 JPY per table) available, so you can relax while you eat. After the barbecue, you can move your body by playing at the open space inside the facility or gathering shellfish by the seashore. This barbecue spot is recommended to people who want to hang out and play a lot instead of using their time for preparations and cleanup.

2. Ushitaki Onsen Iyoyaka no Sato

Ushitaki Onsen Iyoyaka no Sato is a barbecue spot surrounded by nature that is about an hour away from Osaka by car. Guests can come here anytime as they do not have to prepare anything at all before they come, be it tools/equipment or ingredients for cooking. If you come as a group of more than 15 adults, you may avail of the plans that come with free pick up and drop off (plans start at 3,500 JPY per person). Another major appeal of this place is that it is fully equipped with lighting fixtures, so it is able to open at night in the summer. Barbecuing after the sun sets brings about a new ambience that is totally different from the atmosphere during the daytime. Now after enjoying your barbecue, how about soaking in the natural hot spring inside the facility to refresh your body? The great-value plan with bath coupons (starts at 3,500 JPY per person for adults) is highly recommended at this place.

5. Ichirimatsu Camp Site

Ichirimatsu Camp Site is just about an hour’s drive from the center of Osaka. This camp site, featuring a flowing mountain stream, is open for people who want a camping day trip. It probably need not be said that guests have barbecue for lunch here. You can rent the barbecue equipment set, but they do not have the ingredients for barbecue, so you need to bring your own. To people who are good at outdoor cooking, go ahead, show off your skills at this site! And while you are barbecuing your food, you can go fishing or play in the water inside the premises. Camping is OK, too, of course. This spot is recommended to those who want to enjoy the outdoors to the fullest.
