Complex Facility / Commercial Facility

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.

A unique way to enjoy the Osaka skyline. There was no queue and buying the tickets was a breeze. I would recommend going there in the evening for the sunset or at night to enjoy the city lights.

          While Osaka prefecture is the country's second smallest prefecture, its capital, Osaka City, is the country's third-largest and arguably one of the most popular in the Kansai region thanks to its vibrant nightlife, the Osaka people's openness, and its much-loved cuisine, which has earned it the nickname "the nation's kitchen."
