  • I went to see the Planetarium. To time's only Planetarium is 600 yen, child-friendly setting for family had bought tickets one hour after. Because there was a time, pay 400 Yen, visited the Science Museum. There came on a school trip when I was a kid I remember most content has changed and the staff were very helpful. After the Planetarium show ticket stub, and again visited the rest of the Museum.

  • Great little museum! Lots of hands-on activities, many of the displays have English translations, good place to bring your kids. The layout of the museum presents a very clear path that proceeds in a pretty logical order. An enjoyable hour or two.
  • Prepare to spend some time. Lots of interesting to see and test. My kids enjoy themselves very much. Saw lots of school children on a field day outing.
  • Very nice place to learn about scientific subjects. Interactive exhibitions and fun experiments with liquid nitrogen. Some English translations are available, but I guess it's even more fun if you are able to speak Japanese.
  • Great museum for kids and adults alike. Lots of interactive activities to showcase the many weird and wonderful aspects of science. Not too many stations have an English translation however the concepts are easy to grasp and explain to your kids.
  • Fun place with nice interactive experiments. The target group is primary/secondary school kids. But, must admit, as adults we also had a lot of fun! Although the museum is trying to translate more explanations to English, the majority of the explanations remain in Japanese.

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
