“This is NOT a museum”

Osaka Takoyaki Museum
Reviewed 4 December 2017

Located in Universal Walk near Universal Studios Japan. Contrary to the name, this is not a museum, but a collection of a few takoyaki restaurants and a snack shop. The takoyaki is pretty good though.

This is not a museum, it's just 4-5 Takoyaki store in a small corner of a mall. You can find pretty much all of these in Dotonburi shopping area.

If you're an unlucky travel who saw this post after arriving at the self-proclaimed museum, I recommend you to walk to the nearby Universal Studio. If it's already a bit late in the afternoon, you can purchase a twilight ticket at a discount rate.

Best Takoyaki in Osaka. We looked for this attraction based on a referral from a friend. It did not disappoint. The price is affordable and takoyaki is delicious that we asked for a second serving.

Located on 3F of the Universal Citywalk Osaka this area has several takomaki restaurants offering there wares for your purchase.

Menus and prices are boldly displayed, which makes the novice (like me) much more comfortable with choosing which one to try.

I opted for the black takomaki, which was very interesting to taste.

Surroundings were clean and comfortable.

Staff were welcoming, pleasant, and professional.

Pricing was very reasonable.

Self-service cleanup is expected.

Highly recommended.
