Shinsekai Osaka is a colorful district of Osaka with fugu and kushi-katsu restaurants. The main attraction in Shinsekai is the Tsutenkaku Tower.
Shinsekai, which is literally means 'new world', is the area around Tsutenkaku Tower in the Tennoji District. This area has remained largely untouched over the years unlike other parts of Osaka. One highlight is Jan-Jan Yokocho, which runs along one side of Shinsekai. This dining and shopping street contains Izakaya (Japanese-style pubs) and Kushikatsu restaurants (meat, fish and vegetables breaded and deep fried on sticks). Try Doteyaki (cattle organs cooked in miso) as well in a Kushikatsu restaurant.
