Experience Edo Period @ Osaka Museum of Housing and Living

A walk through the ancient streets and experienced Osaka back in 1830s (the edo period) at the Osaka Museum of Housing and Living. The re-production of Naniwa Osaka street scene and buildings with transition between day and night are simulated gave us the feeling how life was in the old times of Osaka. The museum is a complete model of the Edo-time Osaka, the only one in Japan and we can rent yukata during our visit.

Rent Yukata for only 200 Yen
You can rent Yukata with the slipper for 30 minutes for only 200 Yen. I would advise you to rent it because it if really a good experience for you especially when you take photos in the museum. Go there early in the morning because by oon the queue to rent the Yukata will be too long. The yukata is available for female and male.
