“Memorable Experience”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

Downloaded the trip advisor ap on my phone and checked on the reviews on this museum. I agree with almost everyone that this is an excellent experience. Affordable, only 600 yen for the entrance and 200 yen to rent a Kimono. Wearing the kimono while touring around the old Japan village is such a memorable experience. I will recommend this place to anyone who will visit Osaka.

“Best museum in Osaka”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Get to experience edo period, learn about its history and there's exhibition. Didn't get to try the kimono, but definitely a great experience wearing the kimono and walking around the street.

The museum is located beside the longest shopping street in Japan. The tall building just right outside the station after you exited.

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

This is the place where you can rent their historic clothes and stroll around the EDO-period structure. Even better you can actually enter this place.
Special feature of the museum will turn the day into night. it's like fast forward the time.
I did the funniest thing with the tools and also i accidentally step inside the Edo-period toilet. haha

“Osaka's hidden gem”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

I visited the museum after reading reviews from tripadvisor, and boy was I glad I checked this place out. Admission is reasonable, and I had the funnest time taking pictures and walking around in a kimono. I rented the audio guide for 100Yen. The Museum is close to a shopping district there is always shopping afterwards.

“My best place!”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

You can go back to the past, and can be a japanese at EDO-period.
You can wear KIMONO for 30 min, and it costs only 200 JPY~
I won't say anymore, you just go there and feel it!

the entrance fee is 600JPY, but if you have OSAKA pass, this is for free!
