Why Kitashinchi is special ?

his area, located just south of JR Osaka station, was once an island between the Sonezakigawa and Dojimagawa Rivers, and it was called Sonezaki Shinchi. Now it’s called Kita no Shinchi, or simply Kita Shinchi, and it’s the most famous nightclub and entertainment district of contemporary Osaka. It’s just like Tokyo’s Ginza: filled with thousands of high-class bars, clubs and small restaurants where Japanese businessmen entertain their clients. Narrow streets are brightly lit with flashing neon signs and billboards, and as the night gets deeper the signs become ever brighter and more enticing. In the old days this area was where geisha girls delighted their customers with genteel service, dancing and singing, and that is still very much the air that lingers over this whole place.

Coming from Tokyo - as we did - Osaka may seem "small". But it is obviously an optical illusion. The area around JR Osaka station, or this neighborhood, make it clear that this is not so here's vibrant nightlife, plenty of choice of where to dine. For those who know "The soft city" by Jonathan Raban, this neighborhood is a living demonstration of the kind of city narrated by Raban.

高級な店が多くあるイメージですが意外と庶民的な店もあります。但し、本当に高い店も多くあり気をつけないといけません。笑 歩いていると店の雰囲気も分かり良いと思います。本当に店が多くあるのでじっくりゆっくり散策してみて下さい。
