Shinsekai is a district in Osaka known for its vibrant night life, its restaurants and its pleasure houses. At the district's centre stands Tsutenkaku Tower. The area was developed into its current layout following the success of the 1903 National Industrial Exposition. While developing the area, Paris was chosen as the model for Shinsekai's northern half, while Coney Island was chosen as the model for the southern portion of the area. Many restaurants in Shinsekai are open 24 hours, but only truly come alive when the lights come on at night!

  • This shopping area is in front of Tennoji Zoo. It is also situated near Tsutenkaku Tower. There are many restaurants with vast variety of food. There are 2 subway stations nearby ie Ebisucho and Dobutsuen Mae.

  • Try out the local food there! Shops with huge signboard. Special kind of atmosphere strolling around at night.

  • Lots of restaurant with a big range of food types to choose frOm near the tower

  • Nice, but crowded, the food selection and quality are good. You can see the Tsutenkaku.

  • Very nice and vast area to explore, full of shops and restaurants, I would advise to go on the weekend and by evening as it's more crowded and there is this gorgeous show of lights and billboards like you never seen before! so many good restaurants to choose from, they will literally try to pull you inside sometimes lol
