Open House Osaka
26 - 27 October 2019

Osaka is the second largest metropolitan area in Japan, and the central city of the Kansai region. Historically, Osaka developed as the commercial center of Japan during the Edo Period(1603–1867), and following the Meiji and Taisho Periods, Osaka modernized and expanded rapidly. Today, Osaka is a major financial and cultural center of Japan. There are a great number of buildings excellent in design.

Open House Osaka is the largest annual architecture event in Japan. We started an open house event in Osaka for the first time in 2014, and have joined Open House Worldwide in 2019. It showcases a wide range of both historic and contemporary architectural styles. Visitors can experience the full spectrum of Osaka’s outstanding architecture, from famous works of renowned architects to traditional wooden housing.

Every autumn for just two days, over 150 buildings open their doors to the public. Many of them are usually not open for public viewing. Open house Osaka offers you a wonderful opportunity to experience the inside of those buildings with no entrance fee required. In addition, Open House Osaka also provides talks, workshops and exhibitions. We sincerely hope you will enjoy them and discover all the charm of Osaka.
