We visited thinking this would be similar to Tokyo's Haraujuka street, but it's more 'heavy metal/ R&B' than 'hyperdolly'. Still lots of bars/shops/interesting places to poke around, but the overall feel is more heavy

While most travellers head straight to Dotonbori to share cheeks with the famous Glico man, one should also make a trip to its young and hip neighbor 'America Mura'. Located a good kilometer away from Dotonbori, these streets are filled with youths and foreigners alike....More
