Attached directly to JR Osaka station is Daimaru Umeda, a veteran department store where you can find anything from gourmet food, cosmetics, fashion magazines and more all gathered in one place. On each floor, you can find high-class brands as well as popular mainstream brands both inside and outside of Japan. Located on the 4th floor is ‘Cinderella Avenue’. There you’ll find a number of stores selling handbags, women’s shoes and more, making it a must visit spot for the ladies. The floor space for shoes there is particularly expansive with a wide range of designs available from basic pumps for daily use to trendy sandals and boots. In addition, on basement floors 1 and 2 you’ll find Feast Paradise, an area where you’ll find plenty of stores selling sweets and treats perfect for taking home as souvenirs. Of particular notice among these is Rikuro’s, a store selling freshly made Osakan cheesecake so good that there’s always a big line just to get a taste. Made from specially imported Danish cream cheese, please make sure you try this deliciously soft cheesecake at least once.

If you want to appreciate the nighttime view of Osaka then Umeda Sky Building is where you want to be. Reaching a height of 170 meters above ground, here you can enjoy a 360-degree view of the Osaka landscape. In July of 2018, the building commemorated its 25th anniversary, where its Floating Garden Observatory was reopened following renovations. Other facilities such as their ‘café SKY 40’, located on the 40th floor, as well as their souvenir shop, were also freshened up. Also of note is their glass-paned sky escalator that connects to the Floating Garden Observatory. Every year at the beginning of June an event is held where around 2000 fireflies are released from the neighboring Naka-shizen no mori. The tender lights of so many fireflies are sure to soothe your spirits.

Open until the early hours of 4 am, the stylish Umekita Floor! Grand Front Osaka
View this post on Instagram
Since opening in 2013, ‘Grand Front Osaka’ has become recognized as one of Kansai’s most fashionable spots. Consisting of two tower buildings, north and south, in the south building you can find the renowned InterContinental Osaka hotel. In the north building, you’ll find the dining spot Umekita Floor, which is open all the way through the dead of night until 4 am in the morning. On this floor, there are 16 popular bars and restaurants set up such that after ordering you can take your meal to any seat you like on the floor to freely eat as you please. This way you can enjoy the cooking of a variety of establishments at least once. Our recommendation would have to be the sake bar Sawara, where you can enjoy Kansai style Oden alongside some authentic Japanese sake. Ending your day with some piping hot Oden while savoring some delicious sake sounds amazing right?
