About Osaka Takoyaki Museum, Osaka

Even given Osaka's famous love for food, especially takoyaki, calling this place a museum is a bit misleading. It's nothing more or less than the city's best Takoyaki vendors brought together to one place for your eating and comparing pleasure. Each of these restaurants have their own twist on the dumplings. So by the time you're done sampling them all, you'll definitely walk away with an education. That is to say, you know how you like your takoyaki.

Osaka Takoyaki Museum, Osaka Reviews

  • A lot of cute Takoyaki and Osaka-themed souvenirs here! You can find top 5 popular Takoyaki shops here, including Aizuya, Kukuru, Juuhachiban etc. If you're a fan of Takoyaki, it's a great place for you! It's within walking distance from universal studios and the university city JR train station. Located on 4th level at Universal City, it wasn't hard to find at all. Please note that you have to purchase your tickets via a vending machine prior to queuing up to collect your order. There are pictures on the option buttons, so don't fret if you can't read and/or speak Japanese.

  • This place has many unique variations on takoyaki, but the flavor of the octopus and the texture of the batter is not as good as you will find in downtown Osaka. Please go to Dontombori to eat Takoyaki instead. This museum does have a lot of cute gifts and mascots, though!

  • Not really a "museum". More like a food court that has 5/6 stalls that sell takoyaki and a huge souvenir store that you can find in Dotonbori. Not worth coming all the way here, unless you're going to universal studios already.

  • It's inside the Universal Citywalk. If you're a takoyaki lover like me, this place is surely for you. You would surely enjoy the different versions of takoyaki and you can also bring home some ingredients to make your own takoyaki.

  • A lot of takoyaki stalls. Taste okay
