    Commercial buildings in central Semba. The buildings are ten, looking like supporting the Hanshin Expressway, with the first through third are serving as a wholesale market, fourth through ninth are for wholesale textile stores, and the tenth is a shopping center filled with specialty stores. Its major characteristic is its direct access to the Midosuji Line / Central Line Honmachi Station and the Sakaisuji Line / Central Line Honmachi Station, where three lines meet at four different stations. The shopping center comes complete with its own car park, and customers can enter the shops without ever getting wet in the rain. And, with the various restaurants and cafes centered in the underground area, it is always full of tourists and families, making it a very lively place.

    Went there earlier in 2015 and love to shop stationery in the basement shop but this time not as much selection as before. But luckily bought some super bargain scarf.
