The Panasonic Center is worth checking out if you're curious about Japanese gadgets, electronics, and home appliances that are marketed for the Japanese domestic market. I was particularly impressed with the kitchen appliances, as they were really slick, and not available in the US. The...More

While it is lacking the interactive aspects that make Osaka Grand Front particularly notable, it is a nice place to browse if you are coming from The Labs anyway. My favorite are is the 4k TV section.

We really had high expectations from the Panasonic center, hoping to find many exhibits and interactive products. We were surprised the place was rather small and that the only exciting part in it was the kitchens' part. Panasonic needs to get its act together.

The Panasonic center was great! We had no idea Panasonic made so many components of Japanese homes. You can walk into mock-up rooms, kitchens and bathrooms and see all the different materials and storage systems you can have installed. They also had working cut-away toilets...More
