Sakai City Museum
The Bicycle Museum Cycle Center (Daisennakamachi, Sakai-ku) has moved, expanding to 3.5 times the floor space and becoming the Shimano Bicycle Museum. It opened in Minamikoyocho, Sakai-ku, Sakai on March 25, 2022.
Taking as its theme the beginnings, spread, and future of bicycles, this is the only museum in Japan to be packed with the appeal of bicycles for the enjoyment of everyone from children to adults. The museum features dynamic displays of a wide selection of bicycles, including some of the oldest in the world and some other incredibly unique examples, and features various ideas in order to help visitors learn about the history and culture of bicycles, as well as to rediscover their environmental value. The experience zone on the first floor, which is free, allows for a casual dive into the relationship between Sakai and the bicycle.
Events for the museum are also held at the Bicycle Plaza in Daisen Park. Note that the plaza is only open when a bicycle event is being held. Please see the Shimano Bicycle Museum official website for more details.
