    Osaka Osakashi Kita-ku Kakudachou 5-15
    HEP FIVE is a fashion shopping mall in Osaka City. The building is very distinctive, with a red ferris wheel on the roof, and with the use of a striking red and white color scheme for the external walls. This is a trend-setting mall, with around 170 shops—mainly selling fashion and miscellaneous goods targeted at female consumers—and restaurants. The ferris wheel on the roof is an Umeda district landmark, enabling visitors to view Osaka City and Mt. Rokko from a height of 106 meters above ground level. The mother-and-child pair of red whale sculptures hung in the first-floor atrium were designed by famous industrial designer Tatsuya Ishii.

    What I like about this mall is that I can get the Manhattan portage bag for almost half the price online. What more I get it tax free though the lady at one of the shop was rude when I requested for...

    The Abeno Harukas building is a skyscraper in Osaka City; at a height of 300 meters, it is the tallest building in Japan (as of 2017).

    Once you have paid to get to the observation deck you can do the edge experience. For 1000yen I thought this was a good price, you would pay much more than that in Australia. Being that I do not have...

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.
