Amerika-mura, otherwise known as Amemura, is a hotspot for hip and trendy Osakans to congregate. It got its namesake “American Village” back in the 70’s when warehouses in the area would import merchandise from the West Coast.

Now, it has evolved into an amalgam of Japanese subcultures, with hiphop being a predominant influence in the area. Filled with eclectic clothing stores, punk record shops, and chic cafes, Amerika-mura is an area worth visiting, even if it’s to simply observe the locals go about their daily lives.
