Travel Guide - America-Mura

InformationInformation

America-Mura, or American village, is a compact enclave of trendy shops and restaurants thrown in for good measure. It is located one or two blocks west of Midosuji-dori Street, bounded on the north by Suomachi-dori Street and the south by the Dotonbori-gawa River. There used to be just an area of warehouses and parking lots, but after some vintage clothing shops and American import shops opened here in the 1970s and 80s, this area was becoming called "America-Mura" and got much attention especially from young people.
Highlights include colorful graffiti and the general ambience, courtesy of hordes of colorful Japanese teens living out. This area is now a base of Osaka's young designers, artists, and musicians. In the middle of America-Mura is a small park with benches. It is a good place to sit down for a while and watch the action. "Peace On Earth", a huge wall painting located on Suomachi-dori Street is a symbol of America-Mura. It was created by a local artist Seitaro Kuroda in 1983.
