Shitennoji Temple, built in the 6th century, is one of the country's oldest temples. Only the huge gate (torii) is original, dating back to the 13th century. A five-story pagoda here allows you to climb up, and a pond with an amazing number of turtles is a must-see. A flea market is held on the 21st and 22nd of each month, and the Doya-Doya Naked Festival on January 14th is very popular. It is 5-minute on foot from Tennoji Station.

The Shinsekai district, home to the 103m-high Tsutenkaku Tower, gives you a feel of how things used to be decades past. Contrary to its name meaning 'new world', the area is a throwback to good old days of Osaka.

In the every corner of town is the suspicious looking statue called Billiken, a deity of prosperity. Almost all the eateries, souvenir stalls, cinemas, theaters and game arcades are something from a 1970s science fiction movie. The streets are gaudy, bustling, vigorous and energetic. There are many eateries offering kushikatu (skewed pork) and takoyaki. You cannot leave Osaka without eating these two!

X4

Everytime I come to this place, It makes me feel nostalgic about 70s and 80s eras. There are many oddly flashy signs welcome visitors. In this district, streets are always crowded with people of all ages looking to eat cheap and yummy kushikatu(deep-fried skewered meats and vegitables) or just to stroll around the district for something else. You can feel the peculiar but livly side of Osaka when you visit here.

This tower has been an iconic landmark of Osaka since its construction in 1912. The design was inspired by the Arch of Triumph and the Eiffel Tower, for Paris was the model for this area's urban planning. It was the highest structure in the East at that time, standing at 64m. The current 103m-high tower was erected in 1956.

On the fifth floor of the observatory sits a statue of the tower's mascot Billiken. This elf-like creature with a naughty smile is a god of prosperity that is believed to endow a good fortune if you rub the soles of his feet. Nearly a million people visit here annually for good views of Osaka.

The Minami ('South') area around Namba Station is the city's most famous shopping and dining district. Head over to the river-side Dotombori for Osaka's gourmet delicacies, the Shinsaibashi arcade for popular local and international retailers, and Ame-Mura for vintage clothes and accessories. The entertainment complex Namba Parks is south of the station and has magnificent roof-top gardens. It is recommended to amble around the area at night as this is the city's nightlife, vibrant hotspot.
