Day 7 - Osaka/Kyoto/Kobe Trip 2017 - Shinsekai (新世界)
Shinsekai is a short walk from Shin-Imamiya Station on the JR Loop Line, Dobutsuen-mae Station on the Midosuji and Sakaisuji Subway Lines, and Ebisucho Station on the Sakaisuji Subway Line. Lots of sign to direct us to Shinseikai. This place is so different, is like time stand still, even the hair saloon are really very old fashioned. The area retains a nostalgic atmosphere of 50 to 60 years ago. Nice place for photography, very colourful decorations on all the buildings. Tsutenkaku Tower is 103 meters high, with the main observatory at a height of 91 meters. We did not attempt to go up. Shinsekai is the one and only area in Osaka to try the best Kushikatsu. Shinsekai is located around Tsutenkaku tower at Naniwa-ku, Osaka. The area has an intense atmosphere and is different from other bustling areas in Osaka.
