Shinsekai is a fascinating street to visit, definitely great for those who like a lively location. Most of the shops are restaurants or food shops with roughly the same fare so it's definitely fine to hop into any of them. There are those with really long queues which I'd only recommend it for those who have the time to queue. Nevertheless, the place is definitely charming with its colourful storefronts and a good stop overall.

Seeing different part of Osaka & feeling different culture... most of people may skip this place but believe me, it is worth to spend some times... feel the culture... engage the people here... you feel part of it...

A very interesting street that combines both post-WWII era and modern architecture together. Lots of food being sold in the streets and it's a quiet street as well.

Be sure to visit the Tsutenaku Tower, which has some old school stuffs located in it. You got to pay a entrance fee for it though, which costs 600 yen to go up. I went to the tower in the afternoon and it's a great day with clear blue skies and thus took many beautiful pictures here. The tower is a mini-museum as well, many old school stuffs and exclusive Osaka Pocky are being sold here too.

Spent around 2 hours here, and went to the nearby Onsen called "Spa World" and it's a great experience there. Really recommended.

There's really not much to do here. It's a small neighborhood and it's not too busy. Supposedly the kushikatsu here is what it's known for. It's alright, not amazing. Lots of lighting is in the area and there's several statues and posters of a muscle-man anime.

I was terribly disappointed with this area. Bypass Shinsekai and go to Dotonbori. I was also able to walk from Shinsekai to Namba Parks, which was definitely a better place to visit.
