Amerikamura (アメリカ村, American Village) is a small entertainment/retail area of Minami in Osaka, Osaka prefecture, Japan.

Amerikamura is identifiable by the small scale Statue of Liberty which peers down on the streets. It is a well-known haunt of resident expatriate Westerners (known as "gaijin" in Japanese), and centres on Triangle Park, a concreted rest area surrounded by retail outlets of Western fashions, bars and nightclubs, many of which are run by Westerners.

It is usually referred to by the diminutive "Ame-mura."

Over lunch i introduced my chums to daifuku, the beanpaste in ricedough muck my teachers rammed down my throat and i'd gagged at a year before, much to the same reaction.
We headed over to amerikamura in osaka, and area where the kids hang out and try to be american, to quite some success, if a little outdated - the impression is one of having been thrown back in the 80's with crazy outfits and bongos.
In the evening we headed to nara, japans' second most historical city, and took a walk around the famous pagodas at sunset, and dined on udon noodles (tasty) and sake (rice wine, not so tasty - too strong).
