Museum of Housing and Living

The exquisite museum offers visitors an immersive experience into Osaka's Edo (9th floor), Meiji (8th floor) and recent Showa periods. Life-size recreations of Osaka's ancient streets and scale models are complete with multiple original artifacts dating back to the respective eras. One of the museum's main attractions is the opportunity to try on and be photographed in a traditional kimono against the backdrop of a historic Japanese street.

Here, you will come across the Shin-Kabukiza Theatre and the famous National Bunraku Puppet Theatre. Further south is the Shinsekai ward, where you cannot miss the 103-metre Tsutenkaku Tower, a recognised landmark of Osaka.
