Amerikamura, referred to as Amemura by the locals, is a small but spirited retail and entertainment area. It’s named Amerikamura – Japanese for “American Village” – after the strong American influence, especially evident in a small-scale reproduction of the Statue of Liberty. Well known for its Western-inspired fashion, this is where young trendsetters come to shop, strut, and, of course, drink. Here are Culture Trip’s 10 favorite Amemura nighttime locales where you can do just that…and more!
For those into hip-hop and R&B music, Ghost Ultra Lounge is the place to go. The interior is awash in light and color, the drinks are delicious and the atmosphere is vibrant. While normally hosting local DJs, Ghost often invites international DJs to perform, so be sure to check out the schedule before heading over. Unlike most Osaka nightclubs, the entry fee is affordable (though there is a VIP section for those looking to go all out). The bar attracts a mix of travellers and locals, so it is a great place to meet people.
