  • Modern art museum. Often hosts more than one major exhibition offering combination admission at substantial discount. Open late on Fridays. Beautiful building, inside and out.
  • Calm and not crowded. Nice place to see and enjoy the international artworks
  • Mindblowing Museum in Osaka! Once again, Japan have many mindblowing museum for everyone who come to Japan! Recommended!
  • A very slick looking building! Went to see the Venetian collection and it was superb. The building is very clean and well taken care of, nothing less than what you'd expect in Japan.
  • Very beautiful building. The art pieces exhibited are interesting but were not that many.

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.
