Korea town, Osaka
(3.5/5 based on 280+ 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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Korea town by using our Osaka vacation generator.

  • Shopping Mall of ingredients will have goods in Korea and markets. If it is exactly and momodani goko-Dori. Only from tsuruhashi station far away, tsuruhashi-Ekimae and this is increasingly dispersed Korea town. From tsuruhashi STA. walk here, it took me about 12 minutes, so not your homework and no such signs all I don't know. Seems fine during the week to go to the market.

  • Lately tourism has been the I is the lives of local people. Old Hangul, is rife with unfamiliar with pig's head and pig's feet, jeogori and types of kimchi and delicious roast. Shop for most of it and is recommended to be shopping and talking to people who have business in the area since ancient times, so unfamiliar with the tourists always the. Anyway here is Osaka deep, so let's 値切tcha normally but hey expensive boutiques. Osaka Minami and Kita, unpretentious fun.

  • So fresh food shops, wholesale markets closed for most are closed on Sundays is not recommended. If you buy fresh meat and vegetables would you recommend a weekday visit.

  • 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.
