What To Expect

The roots of Tsutenkaku Tower trace back to July 1912, when it was first erected as a centerpiece of the Luna Park entertainment complex. Designed with artistic ingenuity, the tower melded the elegance of the Eiffel Tower with the grandeur of the Arc de Triomphe. Standing at an impressive height of approximately 75 meters, it was the tallest structure in the East at that time, aptly embodying its name's meaning of "a tall building leading to the heavens." Tragically, a fire in January 1943 led to the dismantling of the original Tsutenkaku. In 1956, the indomitable spirit of local residents bore fruit as the second iteration of Tsutenkaku Tower emerged, a soaring beacon of 108 meters, lightning rod included. Notably, this masterpiece was crafted by the ingenious mind of Tachu Naito, the visionary behind Tokyo Tower.

Recent years have witnessed its transformation, introducing a special outdoor observation platform and the thrilling Tower Slider, underscoring its commitment to captivating hearts again. The basement floor of Tsutenkaku Tower in Osaka is home to a unique and fascinating space known as "Jan-Jan Yokocho." This area is a nostalgic recreation of the atmosphere of Osaka's post-war Showa period, particularly the streets of the Shinsekai district. Added to that, you'll discover Wakuwaku Land, an antenna shop representing one of Kansai's prominent food manufacturers. Here, you'll find a variety of gummies and assorted candies at affordable prices. You do not need a ticket to enter here.

Just as famous is this dynamic neighbourhood which is renowned for its vivacious ambiance. “Shinsekai” literally means “New World.” Its charm lies in its nostalgic ambiance and vibrant shopping street. While Tsutenkaku Tower is the highlight, make time to explore the entire Shinsekai district.
