Introducing the architecture of Osaka, which was selected from a unique perspective, from historical buildings designated as cultural properties to small unknown buildings on the street corners, sometimes with public baths.

Complete recording of the popular serialization of the famous magazine “Osakajin” who loves Osaka and is loved by Osakans!

The late Kazumitsu Sakai, a curator of the Osaka Museum of History, has been published in the famous magazine “Osakajin” (closed in 2012).
Completely recorded 72 times of “Excavation the OSAKA” serialized for about 6 years.

The sentences that I checked with my own eyes and feet are concrete and easy to understand, and the perspective of understanding the architecture from the details is unique to a professional curator.
