What travelers say:

The name of 'new world' was named after 'old world' in the Edo period (Tokugawa Bakufu) in the Meiji period. It was held at the 5 domestic industrial exposition held in Japan in 1903, and it was named 'new world'. The old town of "New World" centered on Tongtiange has a strong historical human touch. It is designed by the two major French landmarks, the Eiffel Tower + Arc de Triomphe. The current view of Tongtiange is the second generation of Tongtiange, which is designed by the same architect as the Tokyo Tower.

Additional Information

Introduction

Shinsekai is Osaka's famous old neighborhood that encompasses Tsutenkaku Tower and many historical shops. Many iconic scenes are found here, and it is especially known for the image of puffer fish lanterns set off against the tower. The area has also appeared in many films and television programs. The grassroots sentiment of this district has not changed much over the years, and this is a good place to discover the past prosperity of Osaka, with the communal atmosphere of the city fully reflected here.
