Umeda is an area which houses many attractions of Osaka city like Sky observatory, Hep Five Ferries Wheel. Also it houses big deparmental stores where you can spend hours together shopping. The Osaka Station is another attraction Spend an evening here shopping and dining.

Other than the escalator connecting the two building, nothing special. A more quite area, no public transport to go other than taxi.

Not so crowded like Namba and plenty of good shopping places and good food. Easily accessible by subway and trains.

It's a typical urban city where you have offices, high end department stores, and typical shops that you can find in a urban city. And all of that in a smaller scale, compared to Tokyo. Tip: If you're heading to Tokyo as part of your...More

Local trains get you to the central Osaka district station, not shinkansen. Shinkansen from Tokyo stop at Shin-Osaka, further north.

Walk from JR Osaka or Umeda station (same area). It take about 10-15 minutes to the entrance of the elevator hall.
