Have you heard about the development of Umekita's Phase II District? In 2024, a large-scale town area, set to be "a hub combining greenery and innovation," will open in Umeda's north district, popularly known as Umekita.
The size of this new area is approximately 9 hectares! Even as a variety of commercial buildings, hotels, and MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions)-related facilities are built here, about half of the new area will be dedicated to a city park.
You'll be able to enjoy the area in ways you never could before, from picnicking in the middle of the big city, to enjoying a spa day amongst the greenery, and so on.
In 2023, a new train station will be opened in the newly development district, and it will include direct, express access to Kansai International Airport.
Keep an eye on Umeda—new delights are coming your way! For details, please see the press release.
