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.

Americamura(American village) is a shopping district close to dotonbori where you can buy vintage clothes, jeans, accessories, second-hand records. There are so many unique clothing stores, small accessories shops, and flea markets in the area so that the area is always crowded with young people. You can appreciate “Osaka’s” hip and trendy fashion by observing young people. Also, at Americamura, you experience “Takoyaki” and other local tasty cuisines.
