America Mura, also know as Ame-Mura, is a youth-focused retail and entertainment area near Shinsaibashi in the Minami district of Osaka. In 1970s, the blocks formerly bristled with warehouses turned into a retail center of second-hand clothes, records and accessories imported from the US west coast and Hawaii, thus called "America Village" by mass media.
In addition to hip, offbeat shops with unique merchandising, this retail space is a good spot to observe the latest fads of Japanese teens, as well as pleasant monuments and artistic objects. A sleepless haunt of youngsters, Ame-Mura is busy with bars and nightclubs, attracting hordes of wannabe musicians, designers and dancers at night.

Very cool atmosphere with music and lantern lights - especially at night. Lots of Western stores and amusing symbols of America. Definitely worth wondering through on your way around Namba.

Shopping complex with different universal brands. The area around is full of many other shops and hipster cloth style... Stroll around at noon to enjoy the atmosphere.
However, the whole place can be skipped if you've limited time in town.

Cool space with the Levi's flagship, perfect for denim heads looking for the traditional 501, or vintage LVC or the refined Made and Crafted line!

Flashy building with interesting new and used fashions. Feels representative of America's boldness, but oddly more tasteful.

Very hip and trendy. Lots of 'american stores' playing rap music and selling gangsta clothes. Don't miss Alice on Wednesday or Japan's longest ice cream
