2. Historical landmark & important cultural asset--Tekijuku

Tekijuku was designated as an Osaka Prefectural Historical Landmark in 1940, as a National Historical Landmark in the following year, and as an Important Cultural Asset in 1964. The Ogata family donated the building to the nation (to Osaka Imperial University) in 1942.
Tekijuku, located in a town house in Senba, Osaka, from the late Edo Period, provides us with a precious glimpse of that era. For five years beginning in 1976, Tekijuku underwent renovation, but has been open to the public since.
