Osaka Korean Town, Osaka

3.2
#7 of 40 in Museums in Osaka
Smell the unmistakable scents of kimchi and yakiniku as you stroll through the streets of Osaka Korean 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.

  • One shopping street in one Japanese city more interesting for the variety of meals (I'm not very fond of try everything), so if you like to try foods of all kinds, is your site.

  • Buy socks buy kimchi to go once in a while, but every child wants a home. Full character socks are lined up, so please have children. Eating out and little by little, I am enjoying this Petite Korea.

  • Just because you went to hear a long sushi rather than specifically the neighborhood or restaurants for a minute or so to the 1500s watching HEA

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
