  • Highly recommended cheap option for culture in Namba. 500 yen to go, and ignore the previous reviews - they suggested we took photos - just without flash. I wish I'd known about the opportunity to...  more »

  • A very cute little museum just off the bustling shopping strip, it offers a nice moment of respite and some interesting historical context for the area. Some of the information wasn't translated perfectly and all the name changes of the performers seen in the prints can be overwhelming if you're not familiar with kabuki theatre. The women who ran the place were lovely and very informative. If you have an Osaka Amazing Pass it's definitely worth your time.
  • Very affordable museum nearby the bustle of Dotonburi. A great sample of Ukiyo-E prints can be viewed here! Something to look: the prints that have imbossed sections onto white or other colors. On top of the 6 colors that were printed the extra detail of the texture is a treat to see! Prints, tools, blocks, and an extremely intricate kimono are all on display. No-flash photography is OK! Japanese and English pamphlets are available! They even have English descriptions of the artworks! On the top floor you can color a reproduction of a print or enjoy their library of prints. Great way to see some Japanese history!
