Shinsekai Restaurant Guide

Shinsekai is located in Ebisu-higashi, Naniwa Ward, Osaka.The neighborhood was modeled after the great cities of Paris and New York.Similar to the streets in Paris, the center of the neighborhood has a semi-circular plaza, and from there, roads go out in three directions north.Tsutenkaku, the symbol of Shinsekai, stands in the plaza.Tsutenkaku is an observation tower approximately 100 meters (328 ft.) tall.The Billiken, the god of fortune that is said to bring good luck to those who rub the soles of his feet, is enshrined on the fifth floor observation deck.People affectionately call him "Billiken-san".The nearby Jan-Jan Yokocho is a lively shopping district, and often appears in TV dramas and movies.Many establishments in the shopping district offer kushikatsu (skewered meat), the specialty of Shinsekai. You can enjoy freshly deep-fried, piping hot kushikatsu.The Tennoji Zoo is also nearby, and you can see many animals, such as koalas and elephants.At Spa World next to the zoo, you can enjoy a wide variety of baths, pools, and relaxing massages.
