Amerikamura, or "American Village", is a small entertainment/retail area of Minami in Osaka, 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."
