Little Seoul


The only area of its kind in Osaka, downtown Tsuruhashi is bustling with activity and a fun atmosphere. The area from here to Ikuno Ward has deep ties with Korea, and is known as Korea town or the international market. Koreatown is vibrant and lively. Restaurants serving yakiniku (Asian barbecue) and other Korean foods stand side by side with kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, and sushi restaurants using only the freshest ingredients. Uehommachi, on the eastern edge of the Uemachi Plateau, is a historical area and also a convenient transportation hub connecting to Iseshima and Nara.
