What people are saying:

This fascinating museum recreated a whole community that allows you to step back in time (don a traditional kimono) and learn about the ways Osakans lived during the Edo period. It also traces the transition to modern day structures.

    Small museum with stale air

    It’s too small a museum and the air inside is pretty stale at the new exhibition area where we have to pay an additional of 200yen. Visit if only you have additional time to spare.

    Great experience, good knowledge

    You may take pictures inside the museum. There are 3 sections if I am not mistaken. Use Osaka Amazing Pass to get in there. Just a few hundred meters away from the exit train station.

Additional Information


The buildings and street models of Osaka's early years are displayed in the museum. With the changes in the sound and lights, it shows the round-the-clock rotation of rain and shine, exhibiting the ways of life for Osaka residents in different historical periods.
