Shinsekai is a famous area that you can experience deep Osaka because you see drunken men on the street from the morning.
But it was originally urbanised for the 5th National Industrial Fair, held in Osaka in 1903 as one of the sites, imitating Paris and New York.
I took my chéri to “Paris in Osaka” since he’s from France (not from Paris though).
“Paris? Tour Eiffel? What?”
