Tsuruhashi is the largest Korean town in Japan, where a large number of Korean people are living.

A 300-meter-long shopping street situated between JR Tsuruhashi and Momodani Stations is called Miyuki-dori Shopping Street, with about 150 Korean food stores (selling Korean pickles, Korean-style pancakes etc.), Korean restaurants and ethnic clothing stores.
