Hankyu Concourse

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 19 March 2013 in Cityscape & Urban.

The recently-revamped concourse lying between Hankyu Grand Building (Hankyu Grandobiru), Hankyu Department store and Hankyu Umeda Station, all owned by the Hankyu Railway company in Osaka. When I lived here there was loads of construction and renovation going on in this area, so I was very interested to see all the completed work on my visit last December.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

The scale of that floor pattern makes the people look tiny - how easily we are fooled !

It's the first time I've seen it too. They recycle space so quickly here.

@Stu: Yes Stu - the whole Umeda station area looked very different - got more photos of it coming.

30 years ago, before I came to Japan, somebody told me that Japanese live a great part of the day underground. I thought that person was fooling me.....but I learned better when I came here! It took time to understand what the announcer was saying and what was the train I had to get on and what was the name of the station I was supposed to get off. At times these underground concourses or malls were better than the streets above.

@Japanalia: I know what you mean Gabriela! Funny isn't it...
