Mint Museum Reviews
1) 我選擇從京阪天滿橋站出發，步行前往大阪造幣局。雖然有一段距離，但跨過天滿橋後，沿著大川河畔走，兩岸景色怡人，也非常寧靜，一點都不覺得累，而是非常享受； 2) 在大阪造幣局博物館內，遊客不多，可以靜靜參觀精彩的展覽。從大阪造幣局的誕生、造幣機器的陳列，到勳章、奧運金牌展覽，到幕府時代的金幣、紀念錢幣展覽，非常豐富，絕對不容錯過； 3) 在春天櫻花季節，大阪造幣局是賞櫻名所，可惜我來的不是時候。 more »1) I'm out of the Shinto Station in Kyodo and walking to Osaka Tokyo. There is a distance, but after crossing the tianyu, walk along the Banks of the Okawa River, the scenery is pleasant, but also very tired, but very enjoyed; 2) in the Osaka Museum of Natural History, visitors are not many, you can enjoy a wonderful exhibition. The Osaka Construction Bureau's production and creation of the machine column, to the chapter, the gold medal show, to the shogun age of the gold, read the exhibition, very rich, not to be allowed to pass; 3) in the spring flower season, the Osaka Construction Bureau is a name, but unfortunately I came not to the time.
大阪造幣局內種植了很多櫻花,到了櫻花季節,各種櫻花都會盛放,造幣局亦可順道免費參觀,造幣局門外也有接駁地鐵站的36號公交車 more »Osaka Construction Bureau planted a lot of flowers, to the flower season, all kinds of flowers will be in full bloom, the Construction Bureau can also be free of the road, the construction of the bureau outside there are 36 bus to connect the station
Fantastic and a must see site. It is conveniently located near my hotel. Easy to check in. Museum is not terribly large but very well organized and presented. While I wish there is more English or Chinese description, I read enough to understand the history. Physical money has been important in history, but becoming even more so in a capitalist society like Japan after Meiji took power and made Japan an industrialized country based on specialization and commerce. Emperor Meiji stopped at this spot when he took power and visited Osaka. Osaka was the commercial capital of Japan and the place where innovations were. It also told many history about money in the East Asian context and about Money in China. Staff were very professional. Really enjoyed. At the end of the tour, there a block of pure silver and a block of pure gold. You can touch then by hand. TRY then!
It was a beautiful spring morning when we arrived here. While we originally intended to look at the sakuras only, the museum looked quaint enough from the outside, so it piqued our interest. It was great to see the history of the Japanese currencies and also enjoy the beautiful sakuras. I managed to find a green sakura which I have never seen before. Awesome experience and thoroughly enjoyed it.
