We took the subway to this area and walked around for a couple of hours. Fun tourist stores and many local restaurants. Nice area of old Osaka.

This is a nice spot to walk around and take in the cool restaurant designs. The tower is so rich in history that it is great to see. Walk around and take in the feel of this “bad ghetto” area as the Osaka people call...More

Aesthetically speaking, Tsutenkaku tower isn't anything special. Just a steel tower with some night lights. But the views from the observation deck of the tower are great. It's a nice way to see the Osaka cityscape from a higher perspective but other than that, it's...More

The tower is an Osaka icon with plenty of fantastic photo ops from the streets below. Actually going inside, on the other hand, is underwhelming and pricey. Skip the entry fee and buy some local street food. If you're in downtown Osaka you should definitely...More

This much older tower looks fine and is right next to the Osaka Zoo. It is a much older vintage tower than the newer, taller Umeda Observation deck. The queue can be quite long, waiting for an hour at peak times is not unusual. The...More

A taste of Osaka from yesteryear. Many dining and shopping options and less crowded than Dotonbori which basically offers the same experience. Definitely a must do!

This part of Osaka is considered the “Old Osaka” which has the huge tower that you can get up to the top and see the city. There’s alot of shopping and food stalls and restaurants to choose from.

The area itself has a few interesting streets (and I mean just a few), especially at night for the restaurant entrances but apart from that, not worth it in my honest opinion. It appears to be quite dated and has the feel of an old...More

I wouldn't have visited it if it hadn't been for free through Osaka Pass. It was not attractive as it looked like the modern era in the 1990s. Redeveloping is not easy. However, if it remains outdated, it could be not a tourist destination but...More

The tower opens at 9am. We got there about half an hour after it opened and by the time we got there it was full of tourists. A person working at the Tower directed us to level 3, where there was an exhibition and archival...More
