  • I am extremely familiar about the American bombings on Japan during the closing stages of World War 2, but this peace center completely swayed my thoughts on the bombings. Memories, paintings, and pho...  more »
  • I think it is a chance to Osaka Castle, so stop by anyone. I think Japan, because the weight in such facilities. Overseas, often including the Holocaust. Can be recommended for both children and adults.

  • I stopped by the driving tour of Osaka Castle. 250 Yen admission fee to pay a visit. On Sunday morning it was the visitors was almost not the Charter. You can learn in life during World War II, Osaka air raid damage. Is the facility you want to come please when you come to Osaka.

  • Tip - if you can't read Japanese request a free electronic audio guide. An exceptional museum about Japanese military history and specifically the impact of World War 2 on its civilian population. Thoughtfully designed spaces that present data and stories using appropriate media. I appreciated how many exhibits prompt the audience to consider what they've learned and try to imagine themselves in that situation. My favourite exhibits were the interviews and paintings by Osaka bombing raid survivors. A must-visit location in Osaka.
  • Good to see a bit of the destruction of Osaka. Very limited though on the background of the wars and Japan's role in other countries.
  • The air raid shelter is pretty cool but the museum would be better with more english translation too - The English audio itself is not sufficient.
  • Fantastic exhibits. They had diaries from school-aged children during the war that really touches your heart, albeit in Japanese.
  • very disappointing place . Very little is translated into English despite that being a language that many people will understand if they are not Japanese. Hardly any exhibits of arms/armaments/uniforms or equipment.....but worse of all is the total lack of anything on what responsibility Japan had in WW2. There was nothing on their partnership with Nazi germany or the terrible things they did in the war...the whole thing is just about how the americans bombed Japan.....with no focus on why

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.
