It was built in Daisen Park to commemorate the City’s 90th anniversary in 1980.
Sakai City, which has many gigantic tumulus such as Emperor Nintoku’s, prospered as an autonomous city and a trading city managed by “Egoshu,” influential merchants, in the Middle Ages.
It is also known from cultural aspects, as the place where Sen no Rikyu completed Chanoyu (tea ceremony).
In the Edo period, cutlery production started here using traditional technology.
The present bicycle manufacturing here is also one of the successors of this production technology.
There is also a tumulus theater of free admission in addition to permanent exhibitions.
