America-Mura or Ame-Mura as the locals like to call it is Osaka’s youth culture vibrant heart. You can find this shopping and fashion district in between the Hommachi and Namba areas where it is easy to get lost for a day, wandering around, enjoying the uniqueness of the place. Even if you don’t buy anything you will certainly love the sites known for being a melting pot and hang-out for expats living in Japan.
The area clearly finds its roots in the 1970s when many of the warehouses were renovated by young entrepreneurs, selling imported clothing, music, and all things western. So if you have had your fair share of temples for the day, why not pass by Ame-Mura for a drink or a shopping spree.
