Osaka Museum of History
The Osaka Museum of History lies just outside Osaka Castle Park. The top floor of this museum is a full-size re-creation of the inside of the Naniwanomiya Palace. Each of the other floors introduces a different Period in Osaka's past, using exhibit models and going from ancient days to more recent times as you move down.
To the west of Tennoji Park is Shin-Sekai, one of Osaka's most interesting neighborhoods. This area has remained largely untouched over the years. At the beginning of the 20th Century the area flourished, and pulsed with amusement attractions and restaurants that drew enormous crowds. Today, little of the bustle remains, but many old eating and drinking establishments can still be found.
