Tsutenkaku, the symbolic observation tower located in the center of Shinsekai, was built in 1912, and at 103 meters tall, it was the tallest tower in the East at that time.

From the observation deck on the top floor, you can see the whole city of Osaka. Billiken, the god of healing, is enshrined in the observatory.

The design of the exterior of the observatory was inspired by the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. It is very Osaka-like.
