Extremely interesting. You feel as if you traveled hundreds of years back in time. You can even rent a Kimono for the full experience.

A very nice museum on the 8th floor of a building. I think the price is good only 600 yen and also I recommend buying the audio English guide for 100 yen as it is very in depth. The exhibit really takes you back to...More

This museum is a great way to stroll through the past. Edo period replica village is set up for you to wander through. You can dress up in kimono (surcharge) while there for some great photographs! An hour or two in AC makes this a...More

We could wear Japanese traditional clothes like Gimono and Geda, including traditional socks. Of course it's a bit inconvenient to walk, especially Geda makes us feel more painful when walking. However we can realize why old Japanese people had a short and quick steps on...More

Visited as part of a day trip, actually quite interesting to see what it would have looked like years ago. Not too busy and they do kimono hire it you want it.

This is a small and cute museum. Located inside one floor of a building, it can be a little hard to find. We went there using the Osaka pass (totally worth it combined with other attractions). The best part is a real size of old...More

It provides you with glimpses of the past from homes to retail shops. You can explore back alleys and interiors of homes. It gives you a better feel of what Osaka must have been like during the edo period. Overall well done but leaves you...More

Quibbling I know; but a bit pricey compared to wonderfully slick and grand Tokyo-Edo museum where for 1000¥ you also get complimentary audio-phone guides, reasonably comprehensive English language signage, areas which are hands-on interactive and set out chronologically easy to understand. 600¥ entry, 200¥ for...More

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!
