It stands as the largest and busiest street in western Japan, featuring an array of department stores, shopping malls, hotels, and other complexes side by side.

With numerous offices in the area, Umeda attracts people of all ages and genders, including businessmen, who visit for shopping and leisure activities day in and day out. In addition to the towering skyscrapers, there are underground streets and other locations where visitors can indulge in retail therapy or savor delicious cuisine.

The most famous underground food hall: Hanshin Umeda Main Store

Hankyu Sanbangai is a shopping mall that connects the north and south complexes of Hankyu Railway's Osaka-Umeda Station. While you're in the area, don't miss the expansive Umeda Food Hall on the second basement floor of the north complex.

This bustling food hall boasts 20 shops offering both lunch and dinner options. Whether you're craving hearty stamina meals with long queues, chewy udon, tempura, oden, or even New York-style deli delights, there's a diverse range of shops to choose from.

Once you've secured your seats, head to the shop counters to place your orders. You'll receive a buzzer that will ring when your food is ready for collection. Remember to return your trays and crockery to each shop's return station, adhering to good manners.

Traditional Indian Curry: our high recommendation

Located on the B2 floor of Hankyu Sanbagai, this Indian curry has a very long history of more than 60 years. This restaurant tends to be quite busy during lunch hours. However, the waiting time is short, and the service is prompt. You're expected to eat quickly, typically in less than ten minutes. The restaurant offers only two types of curry: Hayashi Rice or Indian Curry. The Indian curry has a bit more spice than the Hayashi Rice.
