About Osaka Amerikamura
During the 70s, warehouses in Amerikamura were renovated to sell imported goods including vintage clothes, jeans, second-hand records and many other items from the West Coast of the United States. Because of the uniqueness of the area, TV and media introduced the place nationwide and "Amemura" (Amerikamura) became a birthplace of the latest fashion trends.
Even now more than 30 years later, Amemura is fun to visit, to look for young people with creative and unique fashion, to observe entertaining buildings and purchase unique goods from a wide variety of stores.
Also at night, Amemura is famous for the vibrant night life and entertainment district. Bars and clubs in the district are always crowded with people who work in the area, musicians, designers, and aspiring dancers.
