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.

よく見るつぼらやというふぐの看板があります。串カツ屋さんやたこ焼き屋さんがあって大阪の食を楽しめました。 more »There is a sign board of the word "vase" which looks well. There was a kushikatsu shop and a takoyaki shop, and i was able to enjoy the food of Osaka.
Nice place to have food! Unlike specified on websites, I recommend going during the day because it's more lively then. At night there are still good places to eat kushikatsu (local famous "street" food).
It's impossible to rate this out of five. If you're looking for dinner, feeling adventurous, and maybe looking for a party atmosphere then it's a five. If you want a quiet and dignified afternoon it's a one. Look into what there is on offer. If it's your first time in Osaka you've got to go.
