Apparently there are certain days you get to try some of the old unique bicycles too. There is also a section that teaches one how... More

When it comes to bicycles, not many museums are this complete. I last visited several years ago and the museum has been wonderfully updated in every way since then.

What a neat little museum with so many cool bikes. If you love biking. . .then you must GO! Super easy to find and the staff on hand are very helpful. Very good write-ups and photos. They even have some working Shimano parts that you can play with. Best part about Osaka is that it's flat so easy to get... More
