National Museum of Ethnology

Reviewed By Route128North - North Shore, MA


I had only a little more than an hour to spend at the National Museum of Ethnology and wished I had had at least triple that time. This is a large and interesting museum! In my limited time, I visited only the Asian section (not including the exhibits on Japan) and was fascinated by the visual representations of various cultures. The detail in the exhibits was impressive. It is clear that the museum has a strong scholarly foundation and that subjects can be explored in depth, but there is also much to learn and enjoy during a more superficial visit like mine. Signage (much of it in English) was very informative and helpful in adding context to the materials displayed. I loved going inside a replica of a current day rural Chinese house to discover both ancient and modern objects in use at home today. That house as well as many other colorful, life-size exhibits will have special appeal for children.
I hope to have the opportunity to return to the museum--I’m sure I could happily spend a full day or more (I noticed some resting spots that would be handy for a long visit). Actually, I might prefer several several shorter visits, as that way the various exhibits wouldn’t blur together in my mind and I would have more opportunity to reflect on the information presented. Even if time is short, however, I recommend a visit to this unique museum.

Asahi Breweries Suita Brewery

Reviewed By cfinn16 - London, United Kingdom

Genuinely interesting tour with free audio guides. Really fascinating seeing the beer and bottling/canning process. The 3 free beers are great too - and they give you snacks!! Great fun and most definitely recommend it.
You have to reserve a place - we did it on the day and it was fine. When you get to Suita station turn left out of the gates and then head straight to the main road (you'll see the factory on your left). Turn left again and the entrance is quite far down on the left.
Enjoy!

Expo '70 Commemorative Park

Reviewed By YTCHENG - Hong Kong, China

We have visited this fifty year old park by early April this year. Although the cherry and plum trees were still not in good form by then, we strolled around most part of the park in over 2 hours time. The park was large, clean and good for walking. There were also benches for sitting if you felt tired. Recommended.

The Tower of the Sun

Reviewed By EarthlingOnline - Worldwide

Hmmm. How to describe this thing?
Interesting whimsical monstrosity?
Upon encountering this object within the Expo 70 Commemorative Park, it struck me as mildly amusing. Upon looking at photos afterward, I wonder what the park area might have been like had it been fully landscaped without this thing? I think, perhaps, the park could have been nicer.

This is a small aquarium but really well planned. It houses an impressive collection of truly unusual and interesting specimens of fish and sea creatures. I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent there which I estimate was just over an hour. I would have spent more time if I'd had a companion but I was on my own and did not spend as much time marveling over the exhibits. There were many children there who appeared to be truly enchanted.
I have to say I was shocked at the white tiger's enclosure. It was so small for such a huge animal and was totally bereft of any semblance of a natural environment. I felt sorry for the little hippo that was housed directly across from the tiger. The hippo surely would have no concept of safety from this beast that often stopped its pacing and stared directly at the hippo!
But, all in all, I would definitely recommend a visit especially for families with young children.

A great stadium to see a soccer game. IF you are a soccer fan, you should visit it. The atmosphere is quiet different than a game in Europe or US. The only complaint is the food, not very good.

This pavilion used to be called the Steel Pavilion and it had its own theme song called the ‘Song of Steel’, it was used as a music hall during the Expo ’70, as you enter the pavilion you can see what is called the ‘Symbol Zone’ scaled model which during Expo ’70 measured 1km long by 150mtrs wide, there’s directional arrows guiding you through the display(English translations are offered at the ‘Entrance Counter’), there’s actual footage of the Expo along with displays and lots of logistical data, well worth the visit.

Red Horse Osaka Wheel

Reviewed By jacquiscotia - England, United Kingdom

After a visit to Expo Park then dinner in the shopping centre, we decided to finish our visit with a ride on the Osaka Wheel. It was rainy but this did not detract from our experience, not a busy night and we had a pod to ourselves. The illuminating lights on the structure change colour which makes for great photographs, as does the city lights, Osaka lit up at night is amazing!
