Mint Museum Reviews
春の桜の通り抜けでもよく知られていますが、工場見学趣旨を受付に連絡をとり、日程が決まれば係員が内部を工程順に面白おかしく案内して抱けます。硬貨はここ大阪しか製造していません。 more »Is well known in the blossom of the cherry blossoms in spring, but factory tours to to contact the dates if staff internal order process amusingly Guide and hold. Coins are not manufactured only here in Osaka.
여행하는 시기에 조폐국에서 벚꽃을 감상할 수 있다면 반드시 들려야하는 곳! 매년 비슷한 날짜에 열긴하지만 짧게 가는 곳인만큼 겹칠 확률이 낮음. more »In a time when traveling if you can enjoy the cherry blossoms will surely hear a mint where! Every year, similar to the date column, but that is where you are going, as long as the overlap probability for short low.
Fantastic and a must see site. It is conveniently located near my hotel. Easy to check in. Museum is not terribly large but very well organized and presented. While I wish there is more English or Chinese description, I read enough to understand the history. Physical money has been important in history, but becoming even more so in a capitalist society like Japan after Meiji took power and made Japan an industrialized country based on specialization and commerce. Emperor Meiji stopped at this spot when he took power and visited Osaka. Osaka was the commercial capital of Japan and the place where innovations were. It also told many history about money in the East Asian context and about Money in China. Staff were very professional. Really enjoyed. At the end of the tour, there a block of pure silver and a block of pure gold. You can touch then by hand. TRY then!
It was a beautiful spring morning when we arrived here. While we originally intended to look at the sakuras only, the museum looked quaint enough from the outside, so it piqued our interest. It was great to see the history of the Japanese currencies and also enjoy the beautiful sakuras. I managed to find a green sakura which I have never seen before. Awesome experience and thoroughly enjoyed it.
