America Mura snap


Ame-Mura (American village) is one of the funnest areas of Osaka. I heard about it before I came here, when reading my friend Mads from Lovegeek‘s visa application to live in Japan! She mentioned it’s a hang for Osaka teenagers who want to feel like they live in America. It has American-style restaurants, hip-hop music stores, shops selling teen fashion and a mini Statue of Liberty on top of a building. It’s so colourful and cute! Here are some snaps I took there last weekend.


If it’s crazy-bright, kawaii or kakkoi (cool), you’ll find it in ame-mura…


This girl was wearing ‘amusement park’ tights.


Coffee & Hot Menu cafe. They do just 2 two lunch choices for about 700 yen, and they are always oishi.

Mickey Mouse and Daisy Duck bags and a witch’s hat, cute.
