Osaka Takoyaki Museum, Osaka
(3.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Watch the chefs flip various "takoyaki" balls with chopsticks at Osaka Takoyaki Museum, a food court featuring a wide variety of takoyaki outlets. A paradise for takoyaki lovers, you can get a portion from a vending machine or be your own chef as you enjoy the famous Japanese snack, invented and popularized by an Osaka vendor and revered in the local area. You can learn about the history of the dish, the utensils required to make it, and its ingredients, which essentially consist of diced octopus in a wheat-flour batter. Get some souvenirs and take part in year-round events and games at the museum, which sits a short walk from Universal City station.
