Lovely place. Worth going up to the tower in the centre of the place. Food are amazing and at reasonable prices. Busy tourist area even at night. Easy walk away from namba around 12min walk.

Such a good little throwback area! A great place to eat too, with the Yokoduna restaurant a good and cheap novelty for some amazing food, in MASSIVE quantities, at an amazing price! Plus a great place to get some really good snaps.

We came through here a few times in the morning and found the place pretty dead. It is the old part of town and the Hitachi Tower looms over it. We came through here on the Free Osaka Walking Tour and were shop where you can buy Japanese Hanko Stamps which are used by the Japanese in place of signatures.

It becomes fairly empty starting around 23:00. It has lots of great food options and decent desserts as well. It has some carnival games, arcade games, an observatory tower, a great knife shop etc. It is definitely worth spending some time in if you are in Tennoji.

This place reminded me a bit of Dotonburi, but older and quieter. There are some old markets that sell clothing, ceramics, and antiques. It's less crowded than Dotonburi, so I had no trouble finding a cafe to sit down and chill for a bit. There are plenty of restaurants in the area, so it's great for any families that need a place to sit down and take a break.
