I was surprised by the uniqueness of this museum. You can dress up in kimono's and walk around in the small village of what it might have been like to live in Osaka in the past. Definitely a living museum experience. The next room has...More

I really recommend this place! It shows you as if you are in old Japan. You can wear their kimonos and walk around. However, it is sooooo small. It will only take 10 minutes (maximum 30 minutes) of your schedule.

I made a mistake of looking at the pictures of the place first before going, and I was very perplexed. My google maps told me that I had arrived, but I can see no traditional buildings or people wearing kimonos around. In fact, it was...More

Good place to know the history and tons of photo takings here for me. Be prepared to wait in the queue as I remembered I waited like 45 mins to an hour before I managed to go inside.

Take 10 minutes to finish. Go if you have nowhere else to go. Streets nearby are far more interesting.

Small museum spread out over two floors. Models of shops on an old Osaka street were of some interest, and particularly popular with tourists who wanted to pose in front of the shops with the rented Kimono. Can get crowded. Worth a half hour if...More

A replica of an old Osaka street in a big hall, with old-style wooden shops selling traditional goods, showing traditional handicraft and games and lots of old models. The daily cycle takes half an hour or so, so you'll see the lights coming on when...More

Entrance fee is 600 yen. The kimonos were sold out on the day we went there, so come early. Check their site for more info konjyakukan . com (use google translate). Enjoy!
