This unique museum, being connected directly with major train stations, is focused on the daily life of Osaka urban residents. All the exhibits range from the first half of the 19th century to the 1960s. The selling point of this facility is the full-scale townscape model of the urban area of old Osaka in the 19th century. All the wooden buildings, needless to say, furniture, personal belongings and other small items exhibited here are carefully checked by specialists. The visitors can stroll around this virtual quarter to know how Osakans actually got along in the feudal years, when Osaka was Japan's largest commercial city. In this connection, the transition of the time, from the morning to the night, of this townscape model is changed by lighting effects every day.
