One of a great place to stop by. Decorate like American Village. Visit this area before heading to Shinsaibashi or after because this is next to each area. There are also some restaurant here.

We visited thinking this would be similar to Tokyo's Haraujuka street, but it's more 'heavy metal/ R&B' than 'hyperdolly'. Still lots of bars/shops/interesting places to poke around, but the overall feel is more heavy

That was the time when America, Hollywood and whatever US-like was regarded as to be, strong, fashionable and generally...More

While most travellers head straight to Dotonbori to share cheeks with the famous Glico man, one should also make a trip to its young and hip neighbor 'America Mura'. Located a good kilometer away from Dotonbori, these streets are filled with youths and foreigners alike....More
