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

The highlight of my trip to Osaka was the Panasonic Center located in the Grand Front Osaka buildings not far from Osaka station. At the center are two living environments, one for families and one for folks getting on in years like me. Both spaces...More

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
