Fodor's Review

Though it takes its name from the original shops that sold cheap American fashions and accessories, Ame-mura (ah-meh moo-ra), as it's called, is now a bustling district full of trendy clothing stores, record stores, bars, cafés, and clubs that cater to teenagers and young adults. Shops are densely packed, and it's virtually impossible to walk these streets on weekends. To see the variety of styles and fashions prevalent among urban youth, Ame-Mura is the place to go in Osaka.
