Tsutenkaku was an old district but it was lively with hostels around the area. There were a few old shops, restaurants and cafes. There was also a big Donki Shop nearby. Worth the visit.

Tsutenkaku (Or the tower) is an amazing sight to see at night when it glows bright red and changes between two kinds of modes of words along it's side. It was originally meant to mimic the Eiffel Tower and is an interesting tower to learn about after the devastation of WWII and how this tower and the surrounding area came back.

You hear these phrases when you travel frequently. I've heard, people call Buenos Aires the Paris of South America for example. Tsutenkaku is a new structure, rebuilt after World War II. The original Tsutenkaku was built in 1912, and it shocked the people of that era; with a height of 200 feet. The name, Tsutenkaku, translates into Sky Route Tower. At the time, it was the tallest structure in the East. The locals considered Tsutenkaku the Eiffel Tower of Osaka. But in 1943 a fire broke out in the tower, and it was dismantled to supply steel to the wartime economy. The current Tsutenkaku was erected in 1956. It was designed and built by the architect Tachu Naito, who also coincidentally designed the Tokyo Tower.

This area was filled with streets of shops and restaurants. Lots of Billiken replicas around. Apparently you rub his feet and make a wish. The tower houses the famous god Billiken. He is the god of things as they ought to be. the views from the top level of the tower are worth the line up. You can see the zoo below and Osaka castle in the distance amongst the modern high rises. We stopped in the tower for a drink on making our descent. Worth the visit to see how big Osaka really is. Not sure of entry cost as family paid for it. You had to enter by going down to basement. You can buy gifts and they had a huge assortment of machines that you put small amount of coin in and get a toy which is labeled on the outside. Was fun.
