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.
