My most meaningful musuem trip. Besides an insight to the old era of osaka, there is a kimono experience which is very affordable at 500yen half an hour. There are time slots and i liked it because we can book it then come back later...More
The Museum of Housing and Living was a visual experience for us. Be prepared to take countless photos at every corner with each of the display. However, the place is actually smaller than what I thought it would be. After all, it is located within...More
IF we had not been herded into the museum by such brash and pushy older women...IF there were not so many horrifically behaved tourists...IF there were more than a one sentence explanation on things in English...IF it was not so ridiculously crowded. We left feeling...More

I think you might be better to leave the suitcases in the lockers at Osaka or Shin Osaka stations, depending where you will depart. The train station lockers are large and cost 500-600 yen depending on size. These are... More
I think you might be better to leave the suitcases in the lockers at Osaka or Shin Osaka stations, depending where you will depart. The train station lockers are large and cost 500-600 yen depending on size. These are readily available in the station concourses.
From memory, there was a cloak room at the Museum, but I'm pretty sure it was only for coats. They also had small lockers suited to leaving a back pack or a handbag, but I don't recall big lockers.
