Korea Town - Review
A little way south east of Tsuruhashi station is a 300 metre long street. The entrance is marked by a gate with a sign that says 'Korea Town'. Walk in, and you're instantly inside the heart of what is probably that largest Korea Town in Japan. There are 150 stores here, including restaurants. Cosmetics, K-Pop merchandise, apparel, food, spices, kimchi, Korean BBQ - this is a world entirely exotic to Japan. Even all the signs are in Korean. Visit the nice cafe on the first floor of Hiro’s Guesthouse.
For those who don't know why a Korea Town would be exotic to Japanese, let's just say that the two nations have had a rather lively history together.

Korea Town, Osaka Reviews
Korean Vibes in Osaka Lots of Korean products and restau around. Around 10 mins or more from Tsuruhashi Station. Use google maps wisely to get there
Disappointing, lots of small mom and pop shops nothing else, not even a big supermarket. Try Hiroba close to shinshaibashi, much better supermarket
If you're interested in korean pop culture and wanna try the best kimchi in Osaka, come have a stroll here.
Interesting to see some Korean culture, great place to buy authentic Korean foods & beauty products. Nice tea shop (forgot the name) In my experience, Korean people here are always helpful and friendly!
Always come here for a good kimchi. Lots of food stall. Nice
