"Peace museum" Peace Osaka (International Peace Center) Tip by salisbury3933

Not far from Osaka castle is Osaka Peace Museum, which outlines a lot of went on during WW2. Whilst heavily critical of the US tactics of bombing Japanese cities, the museum also has a room showing clearly some of the atrocities committed by Japanese troops, particularly in China. It doesn't whitewash Japan's shameful history as Nagasaki peace museum does.
