Discover houses and townscapes spanning from the Edo Period to the Showa Era

Konjakukan is located in the building of Osaka Municipal Housing Information Center on Tenjinbashisuji shopping street (6 Chome, Tenjinbashi, Kita Ward). It is a housing museum where you can experience the housing and living changes of downtown Osaka from the Edo Era to Meiji, Taisho and Showa period. The best attraction is the reproduction of downtown Osaka of the late Edo Era, around Tempo period (in 1830 to 1844). It adopts such mechanism that town scenery changes as time passes. The decoration by theme changes seasonally too. It really is an impressive presentation.

 

There are other events such as the reproduction of Hamo (a kind of fish) rice recipe and classic entertainment of Kamigata (Kyoto and Osaka area), which was performed in Tatami rooms. Volunteer guides called “Machiyashu” is also available.
