Since the 1970s, America-Mura (America Village) has been a center of youth culture in Osaka. The streets are crammed with used clothing stores, miscellaneous goods shops, cafes, galleries and more. The area got its name from the import shops selling miscellaneous goods from America which were set up here around 30 years ago. Centered at Sankaku Koen (Triangle Park), America-Mura is always full of young people sporting unique fashions. There are performances and flea markets on weekends, which create a lively, fun atmosphere.
