Korea town, Osaka

(3.5/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Smell the unmistakable scents of kimchi and yakiniku as you stroll through the streets of Korea town, a neighborhood keeping Korean traditions alive in modern Japan. With its roots in the time when Korea was a Japanese colony, and its population growing greatly during Rhee's crackdown on South Korean rebels in the late 1940s, the neighborhood has long been home to immigrants from the Korean Peninsula. Stop off for some authentically Korean food, including barbecued meats and the ubiquitous dollop of kimchi, and admire the artistry and design of the traditional Korean features, including the large gate that marks the entrance to the neighborhood.

  • Lined with shops selling Hallyu star toy in the middle on tsuruhashi station from foot can be reached in about 15 minutes,. Maybe that's why young women and teenage girls seemed to be in crowded, this is me! To store kimchi on the road into the Eastern Korean town that Korea food and products with food and beverage outlets. I purchased a kimchi & radish kimchi on the road here. (Omoni famous shop is located between the train station and I. )

  • Back out on the Kintetsu tsuruhashi the grilled meat. It is baked just prior research on, and chose the restaurant good. Failed because the shop before I went in front of the restaurant was decent enters the shops in the shopping arcade. From the layout of the store, basically like a vacant seat base by other customers, meet in a charcoal Brazier grilled meat. It is very shy and tough.

  • We went for the new year. Many shops are closed for new year's day, lots of busy people. From Station Road is a bit confusing in a heartbeat on the flow of people walking and I was able to get. Good mood came overseas, rather gruff clerk for Korea seems to reverse.

  • A little of Korean culture and a good place for interesting food love the cosmetics store and good choice for an evening walk
  • Nice place for going out do eat something. Not big and only for the evening.
  • Tsuruhashi more than Shin-Okubo is there shop. Friends came from Seoul South Korean Busan graduates often with decorations and phrasing is? It said. Because I think a high percentage of residents in ikuno-Ku, itself originally said were aimed at fellow is, but I can't change belly back or touristy like aims. Presence is weaker than tsuruhashi?; ^ _ ^ A? Further, good luck!.

  • É como uma feira na rua(fomos num final de semana), com barracas de comida e lojas que vendem souvenires e cosméticos coreanos. Experimente o docinho feito de fios de mel é uma delícia e muito delicado, que derrete na boca!!! A comida coreana no geral é apimentada. Para quem não aprecia é bom evitar os pratos com cor avermelhada. É um local bem simples, foge dos padrões japoneses que estamos acostumados. Mas, é muito acolhedor e os vendedores foram muito simpáticos.
