Tsutenkaku tower is regarded as the symbol of Osaka, with its resemblance to Eiffel

Tower in Paris.  It’s also famous as the place where the wooden sculpture of a lovely god called Billiken is exhibited.  Today many people visit here to scratch the sole of this unique god’s feet and laugh, for this is said to bring happiness and fortune to people.

Shinsaibasi-suji is a roofed street stretching about 600 meters in the south center of  Osaka, lined with more than 180 fashionable shops and upscale restaurants. 

The street is always packed with many people from all over the world, strolling and speaking varieties of languages, while taking pictures of themselves standing in front of their favorite places. Free Wi-Fi is available. Connection methods and shop information are provided in 4 different languages; English, Chinese, Korean and Japanese.

Dotonbori, the area that represents and typifies the lively image of Osaka, is always the last destination of Osaka tour. Known for its famous sign displays such as a crab with moving legs, Blow Fish and Glico Man, this area attracts ardent followers of Cui-daore, those who ruin themselves by extravagance in food.

Osaka Castle was once the most extravagant symbol of political power in feudal days, established by one of the most popular unifiers of Japan, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, in 1598. The present castle tower is the 3rd generation, rebuilt in 1931 through fund-raising movements conducted by concerned Osaka citizens.
