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.

  • 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

  • the shops here close early, at 5-6pm. will be better to get here in afternoon.

  • KoreaTowns are in Osaka,Japan and also "is located in Shin-Okubo, near Shin-Okubo Station close to Kabukicho, Waseda University"

  • 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.
