Dotonbori Kukuru Konamon Museum

The entertainment museum where you can "Make, Understand, and Learn" about Takoyaki.

Food Theme Park

The big red octopus sign is the landmark. It is a museum full of Takoyaki (octopus dumplings) under the theme of "Making, Knowing, and Eating," focusing on "KONAMON"(Flour-based foods), a familiar Osaka gourmet food. At Takoyaki Dojo Kukuru Takumi, located on the B1 floor, you can make your own Takoyaki. You can choose your favorite ingredients to put inside and use professional tools for cooking them. The staff will support you, so even beginners can try their hand at it.

At the museum entrance on the first floor, you can watch the masterful grilling techniques of the masters of the famous Osaka restaurant, Takoye Dotonbori Kukuru. You can't help but watch as Takumi demonstrates their technique of spinning the Takoyaki rhythmically with two sticks. There is an eat-in space at the back of the first floor.

On the second floor is the "KONAMON History Museum," supervised by the "Japan Konamon Association," which is working to spread and pass on the "powdered food" culture. There is also a space for eating, so you can learn about the history of "powdered food" while enjoying Takoyaki.

On the third floor is the "Konamon Sample-kobo Maneki-Tako," where you can try your hand at making food samples. You can take home the food samples you make, so try your hand at making them as souvenirs. The street where the museum is located is lined with several popular Takoyaki restaurants, so it is interesting to compare their food.
