Umeda 1-chome district
The Umeda 1-chome district begins with Midosuji and is home to a collection of railway stations that form west Japan’s largest terminal. Accompanying the reconstruction of the Hanshin Department Store and Shin-Hankyu building, the city has been improving the area’s public facilities and infrastructure in order to create a prosperous space for all citizens.
The Osaka Umeda Twin Towers South skyscraper born from the reconstruction of the Hanshin Department Store and Shin Hankyu Building was completed in spring 2022. It is a multi-use complex consisting of 3 floors underground and 38 above and is equipped with zones for department stores, offices, and conference zones, as well as a temporary space to accommodate those unable to return home during times of disaster.
The office zone (floors 11 to 38) is equipped with the latest facilities and offers western Japan’s largest office area* per floor at 3,500 m2. The conference zone with two halls, the large and the small, is located on the 11th floor. By using this conference zone as a place to publicize information about business, cultivate internationally-minded talent, and promote exchanges between a diverse range of individuals, the aim is to strengthen international competitiveness and further increase the vitality of business ventures in the Umeda district.
