Ask Osakans what more than anything else symbolizes their city and the majority will tell you with pride that it is the Tsutenkaku Tower. Although the original tower, which was built in 1912, was destroyed in 1943, it was rebuilt in its present form in 1956. At 103 meters tall, the present tower offers a superb view of the whole of the city from the observation platform. The tower is actually located in the old downtown area and is surrounded by 'stand-and-eat' stalls and inexpensive clothing stores.
The Tsu-Ten-Kaku tower is one of the famous symbols of Osaka City,is located in the area that is called "Shin-Sekai". the tower was built about 60 years ago,but you will look its modern neon signs at night .it's really gorgeou and wonderful,but not romatic...
the area that the tower is located was started its history about 80 years(?) ago,its name "Shin-Sekai" means "new wonderful world" in japanese.in those days,people around there wished and named that,but now,the area became old-fashioned.
