This place caters more to tourists over locals. The sumo-food restaurant was pretty interesting to see, but didn't eat there. You won't miss much if you don't come here.

Shinsekai was just steps away from the hotel that I stay, so I have to pass the area almost everyday. Lots of good food! The area is lively at night. Highly recommended

Easy access by the train. Lots of drinking and dining places. Too many computer ggame rooms for locals. Very busy.

Impressive enough during the day, Shinsekai is amazing after dark. The place is awash with sound, smells and neon colour. There are restaurants, shops and pachinko parlours everywhere. If you need something to do, you will find it here.

First night in Osaka and the area is well lit and full of Japanese restaurants. All options are available and crowded. Reasonable prices. It's better to walk around before selecting a place for dinner.

What a great place to visit for food! So many great traditional foods. The tower has much to see also. Go, eat, and enjoy Japanese local flair.

Read about this place before we went but when we reached there, it felt just like another neighborhood (probably we visited during the day). There were plenty of restaurants to eat there but they all seem similar to me. Felt that the servers there are...More

Shinsekai is as Osaka as you get. Plenty of restaurants and shops, decorated as loudly and brightly as you can get. Visit after dark for the atmosphere.

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
