Shinsekai (新世界) is Osaka's "new world," a district that was developed before the war and then neglected in the decades afterwards. At the district's center stands Tsutenkaku Tower, the nostalgia evoking symbol of Shinsekai. The area was developed into its current layout following the success of the 1903 National Industrial Exposition, which brought over five million people to the neighborhood within just five months. Shortly after the expo closed its doors, work began to improve and update Shinsekai.

Ura-Namba, literally meaning “back” or “secret” Namba, is a corner of Osaka’s Minami district that until recently has remained shrouded in mystery. Now the neighborhood is gaining notoriety through its cornucopia of bars and eateries…it’s just a matter of knowing where to go. Seemingly a far cry from its modern, offbeat manifestation, Ura-Namba was once synonymous with the furniture industry. Visit during the day and you’ll still see oji-sans tending to their chairs and cabinets, wiping assiduously in the few boxy shops that remain as they fill the air with the scent of oak and wood polish. The area also has a proud history of performing arts, being home at one time or another to not only

The beef was excellent and the vegetables were perfectly cooked and delicious on their own, especially with the super-flavorful miso dip. Service was wonderful — they’d actually encourage you to take photos of everything, cook the beef for you, slice it for you, and make a real effort to plate it as nicely as possible.

Sightseeing
The construction of Osaka Castle (大阪城, Ōsakajō) started in 1583 on the former site of the Ishiyama Honganji Temple, which had been destroyed by Oda Nobunaga thirteen years earlier. Toyotomi Hideyoshi intended the castle to become the center of a new, unified Japan under Toyotomi rule. It was the largest castle at the time. However, a few years after Hideyoshi's death, Tokugawa troops attacked and destroyed the castle and terminated the Toyotomi lineage in 1615. Osaka Castle was rebuilt by Tokugawa Hidetada in the 1620s, but its main castle tower was struck by lightening in 1665 and burnt down. It was not until 1931 that the present ferro-concrete reconstruction of the castle tower was buil

Getting Around
Kansai International Airport (関西空港, Kansai Kūkō, KIX) is one of Japan's most important international airports. Located on a man made island about 40 kilometers south of central Osaka, Kansai Airport was opened in 1994, taking over all international and some of the domestic air traffic formerly handled by Osaka's Itami Airport. Kansai Airport has two terminals. Terminal 1, the main terminal, is housed in a long, modern building and serves both domestic and international flights by regular airlines. The railway station is located directly adjacent to it. Added in 2012 in a more remote, spartan building, terminal 2 serves low-cost airlines (LCCs). It has fewer bus connections and no train serv

Essentials
Gyomu Super is a supermarket which has stores scattered around the country. It is not as dominant or commonplace as Seiyu and other main supermarkets, but if you live in a generally busy area there will likely be one close to you. The stores have a green sign, displaying “業務スーパー”, at the top, which is Japanese for Gyomu Super. Gyomu Super advertises itself as a business supermarket, which means they sell bulk products to businesses. This explains why products are a lot cheaper than you may find in other places. However, unlike some business orientated stores which you need to prove you have a business to access, anyone can come and shop here!
