To those visiting Osaka and Dotonbori, you should not miss Tsuruhashi, the Korea Town in Ikuno Chou which is very near. A variety of Korean merchandise, spicy food, Korean nori and the Hanbok. Everything can be seen here.
Korean/Japanese descendants consist of this population in Osaka. Having the chance to make business with Korean products in a Japanese system, they surely made this part, their second home or a home away from home!
You enjoy the immersed culture and famous foods of Korea. Experience Korea and the business culture and people, the colors, and shop your hearts out in this busy area of Osaka!
WHAT TO EXPECT
What fascinates me most was how they make bargains seemed easier but when you ask for a price other than their limit, they will drive you away hastily 😀 And that is what so interesting and fun.
The main highlight when we went was to shop til we drop but that wasn’t the case when we were there! I only bought what, you say? Kimchi!! Yes, Only that! 😀
There is this dish you would not want to ignore and a must buy .. the kimchi and the mentaiko! Korea’s considered soul food can be bought here, in a very reasonable price! Perfect for dinner or beer! Be sure to include “Korea Town” in Tsuruhashi when you visit Osaka next time!

A little Korea in Japan, how cute! I’m not sure if I spotted this when I went to Dotonbori, I can’t remember it now. I didn’t do much shopping in Dotonbori then because I was determined to go home with money haha… Anyway, I made up for it when I went to South Korea just last month. I would even that the highlight of my trip was shopping in Myeongdong. I had a blast buying Korean products and some clothes. I would love to check this Korean town when I go back to Japan. This time, I promise to go shopping.

I’ve never been to Japan or Korea before, so I didn’t know that Korean/Japanese descendants consist of the population in Japan. This Korea Town looks fun to explore, especially since nowadays there are so many affordable Korean beauty products with high quality. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
I love bargain shopping so I’m sure I would love this! 🙂
Just added Tsuruhashi to my travel bucket list! Thanks for sharing.
That explains why Korean population in Japan thrives
I love shopping in other country’s but find it hard sometimes to negotiate about prices 😮
