Kitashinchi Restaurant Guide

The entertainment district, spread across Dojima, in the Sonezachi Shinchi are of Osaka's Kita Ward.It is also simply referred to as "Shinchi".It is said that Dojima's Shinchi entertainment district, which was developed in the Edo Period, came to be called the "Northern Red Light District" or the "Norther New Territory" because it lies north of Osaka Castle.In the 18 century, Dojima became a rice market, and the entertainment district moved to Sonezaki Shinchi.The entire area burned down in the great fire of 1909, but Sonezaki River was filled in and the area that was reconstructed there is the current day Shinchi.With high class clubs, lounges, snack bars, and regular bars lining the streets, it represents Kansai as a high class food and drink area.It used to be exclusively for entertaining important guests, or a place where famous people could come and have fun without being seen where it wasn't so easy for the common man to enter. In recent years, however, with the recession, it has evolved into a comparatively reasonably priced area where you can enjoy karaoke lounges, girl's bars, pubs, etc.
