About Korea Town, Osaka

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 - Write a Review

  • A very nice traditional japanese neighborhood with strong korean influences. I recommend to go off att Tsuruhashi and walk to the monodani station (right next to korea town) to experience the international market with many korean delicacies!

  • Fantastic food. Lots of sidewalk shops. Make a point to go here.

  • An old Korea Town said to exist during WWII. This town still follows old Korean tradition. It is closed at 1700. After this only the street lights are on. There are many fast cyclists here. At the very end of this town is Sendai Mart. You can find 100 yen/L drinks here. There is a sleepy river that demarcates this town from the next area.
