Spend some time here if you want a taste of how the Japanese lived in the past. It's also kimono land for those who want to dress up and have some selfies. Since it's directly linked to the station on the 8th floor, it's a...More

The place is easy to access. The area is not big at all, but enough. The highlight of it is the kimono rental, so you can actually 'feel' and not only 'see' how it is the 'housing and living' during the Edo era. The group...More

This museum is nice and some of the reconstructions are really interesting, but there's so many people making photographs while blocking the corridors that the visit gets annoying really quick.

So glad we visited. Suggest to go early in the day, can get busy later. Recommend the audio tour headset for a better understanding. There are also English info sheets available along the short tour. Well worth the small admission fee. Well done and interesting....More

Can be a great family day in Osaka even when the weather is bad because it is inside a building and experience different periods of Japanese history and get to see why they are so close knit and like minded

This museum is located on the 8th floor in a tall building (look for a McDonald standing where Google Maps directed you to and enter the tall building opposite it). It's a rather quaint experience and you even get to rent a kimono to take...More

A village contained inside a building. This is the cheapest place to hire traditional dress Yen 500. But you need to get in early to reserve your time. The village is an acurate historical replicate and features stories to join it.

The exhibit was awesome and our children loved the experience. Kimono wearing is also offered. Exhibits were displayed in moving dioramas and very modern way of displaying. Musics too. Great museum

It's a museum that shows the progress of the housings in Japan from back during the Edo days til present. Interesting but I would consider it NOT in a must visit list.

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!
