The Entrepreneurial Museum of Challenge and Innovation

Aiming to develop the next generation of human resource, the Osaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry established the museum. Since the early days, Osaka has been called “the city of merchants”. Merchants came to Osaka from all over Japan to start businesses and they created not only new products but also such as technology, business models and services. Then they contributed to economic development and the improvement of our quality of life. We exhibit bright achievements of the 105 entrepreneurs who succeeded in Osaka since 1868, including the founder of Panasonic, Konosuke Matsushita and the founder of Nissin Food Products, Momofuku Ando. We can study their ideas, attitudes and towards methods here.
Exhibitions and audio guides are provided in Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean.
