"A tourist information center catering to foreign visitors opened Monday on the first floor of a hotel in the Airin district of Nishinari Ward, Osaka....Tourism in the area by young backpackers and other budget conscious travelers has been increasing over the past five years, in part because of the numerous lodging facilities there priced between 1,000 yen and 2,000 yen per night."
