The neighborhood dates back to early 1900’s and grew in popularity through the post war “Showa” era until the 1960’s. An exploration in this colorful neighborhood really is very “Local-Osaka.” Though people visit from across Japan and around the world, this area is still very much a locals spot- with many shops, restaurants and gaming parlors catering to the everyday laborers who live nearby. this retro-district is full  of inexpensive local dining and entertainment options. Take a stroll with our local expert and we will show you the hidden gems and explain the colorful past history of Shinsekai through the years. You will get to try 6 different local dishes at 5 different shops. Each item has a long history in the Osaka area.

Shinsekai evokes the SHOWA era in Japan which was full of optimism, growth and communal sense of building a better future together.
