Fukushima is a business district in Osaka, with many buildings lining the streets. Recently, however, more and more reasonably-priced restaurants have been opening up in the area. While it’s becoming a competitive hotbed for new eateries, it’s still relatively unknown to people outside of Osaka. We’d like to show you around, so don’t miss out on this up-and-coming hot spot!
Even though it’s only one stop from Umeda Station, you rarely see any tourists here.
So with that, let’s take a look around the area and see what the place has to offer!
▼JR Fukushima Station
First off, cafe selection!
We will visit 2 cafes. The first will be a guide recommendation, and the second will be up to you. (We’ll show you several cafes and you can choose from among those options).
Here’s an example of some places the tour might take you...
ex.1：A cafe for coffee lovers
▼A jar full of coffee beans...and a working light bulb?!
▼Inside are counter seats only. For hot coffee, you can choose the mug yourself from the shelf above!
▼A cool looking roasting machine, and the aroma of fresh coffee^^
▼There are also other options like smoothies, black sesame latte, and citron tea^^
▼The pressed coffee (with your choice of beans)
Get it to go
There’s a variety of coffee beans inside the store. If you like any in particular, you can buy them^^ They could also be good as souvenirs or presents! You might occasionally see locals coming to do exactly that.
This is a cafe for those who want a local feel or relaxed atmosphere! The shopkeeper is very friendly too and can talk about lots of things.
Moving on to the next place, we’ll take a look around town and you can check out some of the cute stores! ^^
ex.2：A trendy Korean-owned cafe
▼A super popular cafe among the trendy younger crowd. Whether it's the drinks or the interior, this place has an emphasis on aesthetics.
▼The stylish interior
▼Music and movies to fit the mood.
Changing interior, 2x a year
The owner’s into interior design, so the layout changes at least twice a year. Sometimes, there are intermittent changes too. The next large-scale remodeling is planned for February 2020, so if you go after that, it may be an entirely different cafe♪
▼Their no.1 item, soyon latte, and the matcha latte
▼Mirrors surround the store, so you can get a pic with the interior from any angle♪
▼You can get pics like these too
That was just one example of a tour. There are many more possibilities, so please come and see what’s in store♪
Other options: A quick glance
Here are some other options.
▼A stylish cafe with a great interior and exterior
Go inside and you’ll find mini exhibits for artists. They also have small items and accessories for sale!
▼A cafe decorated in white
They have various kinds of bagels and toast. The interior has a very relaxed atmosphere.

They make their own bread and sweets. For lunch, the “Continental Curry” is a popular item.
