Osaka’s latest mega-structure is now open for business. Osaka City Station features the renovated JR Osaka Train Station, accompanied by the recently constructed North Gate Building. The complex features a couple hundred shops (or so I’ve heard), a department store, a fitness club and tons of restaurants.
I tried to catch the opening and have a look around, but the mass crowding was insane – even for Osaka standards!
There were snaking lineups just to use the escalators. And getting inside of the actual North Gate Building meant standing in long queues. I decided not to wait; lineups just kind of stress me out these days. Besides, I’ll have a much better opportunity to shop around when everyone’s back at work.
And construction continues…
Lots of it!
