Retro Osaka Street Food Tour: Shinsekai

The Shinsekai district is unique. Join us on a foodie adventure and travel back in time to this local entertainment district for a taste of vintage Osaka!

Though people visit from across Japan and around the world, this area is still very much a local spot with many shops, restaurants and gaming parlors catering to the everyday laborers who live nearby. Take a stroll with our local expert and discover hidden gems and learn more about the colorful past history of Shinsekai through the years. You will get the chance to try different seasonal and local dishes at 5 different stops. Each item has a long history in the Osaka area.

Shinsekai evokes the SHOWA era in Japan which was full of optimism, growth and a communal sense of building a better future together. There is a lot of romance and nostalgia surrounding this period in modern Japanese history. This vintage neighborhood brings back all the charm of 1910 through the 1960’s, a boom period for Osaka City.
