Shinsekai, Osaka

(3.4/5 based on 900+ 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.

  • Town culture rooted in specific areas in Osaka as the name of the new world, into the bath 24-hour drink at any time. Janjan alley, tsutenkaku Street until the Showa atmosphere remains deep-rooted. Was crowded with nishinari laborer who is the era before, but now tourists main turned. Because it's old and the Cup is broken and I jumped the kushi katsu restaurant in trouble it. Man born Osaka nishinari born in Osaka's famous kushi katsu I heard miss the old drink heartily at 1000 yen, there was no brave new world.

  • New world look up to tsutenkaku is very interesting in the city full of vitality Osaka. I think it seems to be mixed with clothing stores and eateries, a shogi dojo of Miyoshi Sakata Naniwa.

  • The old town of Osaka. In the daytime, most shops and restaurants are still open, no pets. But now there will be sitting together eating lots of. The tower can be seen, but if it is up to the top, it must lose, please add.

  • 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".
