Shinsekai is a local area in Osaka near Tennoji known for its nostalgic flair. It began to be built in the early 20th century, being influenced by major Western cities. However, the product is quite unlike its European and American models. Today, it is mostly known as quirky and seedy area with good local food. It is particularly famous for kushikatsu or fried skewers. It is also home to Spa World, a large bathhouse. Shinsekai and its vicinity is considered less safe according to Japan's high standards, not least because of its red light district and drinking establishments.
