Nishinari-ku is one of the 24 wards of Osaka, Japan. It contains some shopping and entertainment areas, such as Shinsekai and Tamade. It lies directly south of the Namba transport hub and extends further south toward Sumiyoshi Park. It is served by the Nankai Railway lines as well as the Yotsubashi and Sakaisuji subway lines. Nishinari-ku is also home to a number of shitamachi ("lower-town") shopping streets, increasingly a rarity in fast-developing urban Japan. Kamagasaki in Nishinari-ku is home to a large number of day-laborers and most of the homeless people in Osaka.Crime and safetyTwo designated yakuza groups, the Sakaume-gumi and the Azuma-gumi, are based in Nishinari.TransportWest Japan Railway CompanyOsaka Loop Line: Shin-Imamiya StationOsaka Municipal SubwayMidōsuji Line: Dobutsuen-mae StationSakaisuji Line: Dobutsuen-mae Station, Tengachaya StationYotsubashi Line: Hanazonocho Station, Kishinosato Station, Tamade Station
