Osaka Korean Town, Osaka

(3.1/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Tsuruhashi is most populated Korean area in the whole Japan. That's why its nickname is Korean Town in Osaka. There are plenty of food all around the station. Even though you are not looking for Korea...  more »
  • I have been eating here for over 25 years and it continues to have great Korean food in local restaurants. The Bibimbo and the many styles of kimchee are worth the visit.  more »
  • It is near Osaka momodani station I. Korea restaurant is this region lot lived for Korea, Japan is not quite a. There are many retail stores, including Korea's kimchi or meat. And Korea shopping district located near tsuruhashi station also is the town a little different atmosphere.
