“Nakazaki-cho is located only a short walk from Hankyu Umeda Station and JR Osaka Station. Even though the peripheral with skyscraper-lined business district, there are decade-old folk houses remained in Nakazaki-cho, and those are renovated to use as popular cafes or vintage clothing stores. Although it is a popular area for young people as well as Shinsaibashi, the place is not about the hustle and bustle like Shinsaibashi, and visitors can enjoy a walk around in the relaxed atmosphere. Old houses in Nakazaki-cho were preserved because the area was free from damages by air raids during World War II. Marginalized from the post-war development, nobody was interested with the area until utilized as renewed stylish town with nostalgic sense by young generations with new sensibility. ”
