This an ideal choice for travelers with limited time in Osaka. Save hours researching where to visit in Osaka, and instead have an action-packed itinerary created for you. Traveling between sites in a private vehicle means avoiding the crowds on public transport, and fitting more into your day. You also don't worry about getting lost. Highlights include Dotonbori, Osaka Castle, Shinsekai, Shitenoji, and Harukas. Your tour is enhanced with entertaining stories along the way, and useful tips from your guide.

The museum covers the periods not relevant to the castle. The dioramas are excellent. Lots of rooms and the children's activities.

The exhibition in the museum is very impressive. The view overlooking the castle and the location of the Nan-Bo palace is stunning. I am overwhelmed by the history of Osaka after visiting the museum. Highly recommanded!

We visited this place while visiting Osaka castle castle nearby. From the upper floors, we could get a good view of Osaka castle and the surrounding park directly across. We browsed through the exhibits fairly quickly as we were not much history buffs. We enjoyed the views from the building though.
