Umeda / Osaka / Amagasaki Station is one of the busiest districts in Osaka, because it operates a booming transport hub along with one of the city’s favorite shopping districts. It’s marked by Umeda Sky Building, twin towers that are linked at the top of the structure rather than at the bottom. This entire district boasts innovative connections like this, but most of them happen underground.
The luxury hotels around Umeda, Osaka and Amagasaki stations are some of the city’s top options. They’re located in gleaming high-rises that dominate the skyline, near exciting dining and shopping areas.
Shin Umeda City is a popular entertainment complex best known for its hanging garden, suspended 170 meters above the ground. This complex offers sweeping views over Osaka, and it draws camera-toting tourists from other provinces and abroad. Other entertainment venues in the area are Kids Plaza Osaka (a children’s museum) and Suntory Museum, with its stunning architecture and IMAX Theater.
The most attractive reason for visitors to book accommodation at Umeda / Osaka / Amagasaki Station is to be in the middle of one of Japan’s most innovative shopping scenes. The best shopping malls and arcades are hidden beneath the streets, but they’re linked to local hotels and dining areas.
Getting here is easy thanks to Osaka Station. Trains arriving from outside Osaka terminate here, and then passengers connect to the metro via Umeda Station. Both link to the network of underground shopping malls.
