Umeda —Good news for shopaholics – now there are even more ways to spend your money in Osaka. Located close to the Osaka station building, Grand Front Osaka has opened. As the first of a two phase regeneration project for the Ume-kita area, the new complex, which has 11 floors with 266 stores, features Japan’s first Zara Home store, and western Japan’s first Ron Herman store. Muji, Actus and Keyuca have also pinned their flagship stores here. Expectations are high for the complex: Hankyu Corporation bosses hope to make forty billion yen and serve 25 million customers in the next year.
