Smell the unmistakable scents of kimchi and yakiniku as you stroll through the streets of Ikuno Korea Town, a neighborhood keeping Korean traditions alive in modern Japan. With its roots in the time when Korea was a Japanese colony, and its population growing greatly during Rhee's crackdown on South Korean rebels in the late 1940s, the neighborhood has long been home to immigrants from the Korean Peninsula. Stop off for some authentically Korean food, including barbecued meats and the ubiquitous dollop of kimchi, and admire the artistry and design of the traditional Korean features, including the large gate that marks the entrance to the neighborhood. Using our online itinerary creator, Osaka attractions like Ikuno Korea Town can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

I love this place! BTS everywhere since they are the most popular nowadays. Most stores in the market are kpop inspired. Stores open like 10am and closes 4 or 6pm..
It's ok if you have 1 hour to spend but you might need time to go there since it's in the middle of nowhere. It's honestly not so crazy.
