Just strolling into this place is like jumping out of a time machine. Everything you see reeks of the past and it is glorious. Compared to the more modern areas of the city, this is a refreshing stroll through old time Osaka. The very colorful,...More

It's a nice place in Osaka to add to your to-go list, nice place to take instagram posts especially around the evenings since those neon lights are everywhere and the selection of restaurants are plenty. But, that's it.

This seemed to be an older street mall area yet very full of life. The tower was worth the trip up. Lots of good restaurants and old arcade shops.

I don't recommend it. nothing much exciting. Only we liked the restaurants nearby. Go only if you have abundant time and nothing else to do.

Shinsekai is a tourist trap, extremely crowded and full of restaurants which serve low-quality food — though the waiting line in front of these shops are very long. The potential charm of this place is lost because of these aforementioned factors.

The distance between the nearest station from Shinsekai ; Ebis-Chou and the bridge over Doutonbori Canal is shorter than a mile. The problem is that too many people are walking. Each of them are on the same South-North... More
