Inspirock Rating:
3.2/5 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.

  • Live quite a bit longer in the Kansai region, but for the first time went to the new world. I was surprised at the comparatively narrow. But a good atmosphere was tsutenkaku felt.

  • 裡面的商店街很有地方小市集的感覺,不像新齋橋這麼熱鬧,但是感覺是當地人會喜歡拜訪的地方。好多飲食店,會有人在外面招攬客人。附近還有通天閣跟動物魚還有SPA WORLD可以拜訪。 
  • I felt a dynamic mix of people, do not lend themselves well to families with young children. There are many many foreigners too much pattern often not locals. Feeling in kushikatsu went too slowly can dangle didn't just eat, returned immediately.

  • 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.
  • Very beautiful neighborhood at night. It was raining when I was there and felt like it was right out of the movie "Blade Runner".
  • Beautiful at night when it is shining, boring during daylight.
  • Very strange and nostalgic place. Worth seeing.
