This is one of the best thing we did in Osaka. The museum isn't very big but it is definitely one of the best in terms of experience. We went as a family of 6. We wore the traditional Japanese kimono and walked within the...More

The staff are very friendly, and though everything is explained in Japanese, they will demonstrate many interesting things to you as you walk around. It's hard to find the museum (it's at the end of the shopping street on the right-hand side, in a very...More

This is on the 8th floor - look for the access signs at the entrance. Great museum laid out like a traditional row of merchant houses & shops with lots of interactive displays & things to try

I found this place nice for having Kimono experience for 30 minutes and nice snap clicks. Kimono rental is only 500 yen which is very much cheaper than any other place.

We went here thinking only about wearing Kimonos. However, upon arriving, we were in awe as we saw a whole village during the Edo period. Entrance is on the 8th floor and upon arriving, the front desk would tell you (in English) to reserve your...More

This is a nice little gem where you can experience a few things: Wear kimono, walk around the "small village", close to what it was like in the old days. At 600 yen, this is definitely one of the most affordable kimono rentals you ever...More
