Its not as touristy as in Namba. According to the history, Shinsekai used to be so vibrant back then. Many kushikatsu restaurants here. Randomly walked in one and it's superb!

We walked through Shinsekai around mid afternoon and the place was quiet. From the subway station, we strolled through a couple blocks of covered streets and then passed by the zoo. After walking by lots of shops, restaurants, rifle arcade game stalls, and cafes, we...More

Shinsekai Tower is recommended place to visit. There are many restaurants and bars available here. Many people during night time. Recommended place to see the night life of old Japanese style.

The restaurants and shops are very touristy and nothing special. If you go better at night as there are lots of flashy signs and great for photos. The main tower is free to enter with some passes, otherwise I would not go up.

Such a good little throwback area! A great place to eat too, with the Yokoduna restaurant a good and cheap novelty for some amazing food, in MASSIVE quantities, at an amazing price! Plus a great place to get some really good snaps.
