Although you won't see any fossilized takoyaki nor skeletal remains of the first takoyaki cook, the Osaka Takoyaki Museum prides itself on the different types of takoyaki that are being served in the takoyaki shops in this themed dining destination.

My wife and I got the chance to visit the "museum" after our trip to Universal Studios Japan during the 6th day of our 2014-2015 Japan trip. I was the one who insisted that we visit the place due to the fact that I am a big takoyaki fan (I love the takoyaki of Samurai fast food in the Philippines). Luckily, my wife gave in to what I wanted. However, because it was lunch time my wife wasn't in the mood to eat food without rice. That's why I missed the opportunity to taste all the different types of takoyaki.

Despite missing the chance for a taste-ravaganza, I was still happy for the fact that I got to visit such a place. Hopefully, my wife and I would get to do a little food tripping when we come back.

Overall rating


  1. I can't seem to find this one. I know it's an old article but is it by any chance the same as the Takopa or Takoyaki Park in Universal City Walk?

    1. Yes, it rebranded to Takopa but it is still there.
