The Open Museum of Traditional Houses in Osaka is in the outskirts of the city but it is very accessible to the subway.
From the subway, challenge yourself to walk for 800 meters. It’s easy to find it even if I didn’t see any billboards to direct me there. However, don’t ever expect too much about the place. There were only less than ten people when I was there—and that’s good. It’s obviously not a tourist destination—unless you fancy the wonders of traditional Japanese architecture—then this place is your paradise of learning.
Each house in the open museum is clearly labelled and translated in English. No need to join or get a guide.
