Shinsekai Osaka

Shinsekai (lit. "New World") is a working class area of southern Osaka. Tsutenkaku Tower is the area's most famous landmark. Shinsekai's other attractions include the Osaka Municipal Museum of Art, Tennoji Park and Tennoji Zoo. Spa World is a huge public bath with bathing areas recreated to mirror various European cultures. Festival Gate, a retail and entertainment area that boasted a roller coaster wrapped around the building is now closed.
