Shinsekai, Osaka
(3.4/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
An Osaka neighborhood inspired by Paris and New York , Shinsekai offers visitors a riotous array of colorful signs, tiny eateries, and bustling crowds packing the narrow streets. You can wander the busy lanes and see how the working-class Japan lives, or grab some traditional barbecued meats and vegetables at one of the multitude of inexpensive diners along the way. Look towards the center of the district and you'll see the 103 m (338 ft) tall Tsuten-kaku--a distinctive steel tower originally constructed in 1912. Make Shinsekai a centerpiece of your Osaka vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Osaka itinerary maker.

  • If you play in Osaka, first of all, in the new world beers you enjoy eating skewered Katsu and climb to the tsutenkaku.

  • Đông vui nhộn nhịp
  • A shopping area with very long history. No modern building nor modern shop. But you could feel it. It is the landmark in Osaka for decades. Just walk around and you could feel the another side of Osaka.,
  • I love the atmosphere here. It's fun and very attractive me to check how people in osaka live.
  • This whole street with it's colorful restaurants is so charming :) you better come here with empty stomach !
  • Very beautiful neighborhood at night. It was raining when I was there and felt like it was right out of the movie "Blade Runner".
