Open-air Museum of Old Japanese Farmhouses日本民家集落博物館

Museum / Science Museum

Located in Hattori Ryokuchi Park in Toyonaka City, Osaka Prefecture, the Open-air Museum of Old Japanese Farmhouses was the first open-air museum of its kind in Japan when it opened in 1956. The Museum has on display 12 representative examples of traditional farmhouses from different parts of Japan—from Iwate Prefecture in the north to Amami-Oshima Island in Kagoshima Prefecture in the south—that have been relocated to the Museum site. Several of the buildings on display have been designated as Important Cultural Properties, including Gassho-zukuri style farmhouses from the Hida and Shirakawa-go regions, and a Nanbu Magari-ya (L-shaped farmhouse) from Iwate, northern Japan. Inside each house, typical furniture and living utensils from the region in question are displayed.

While Osaka prefecture is the country's second smallest prefecture, its capital, Osaka City, is the country's third-largest and arguably one of the most popular in the Kansai region thanks to its vibrant nightlife, the Osaka people's openness, and its much-loved cuisine, which has earned it the nickname “the nation's kitchen."
