Travel Guide - Whity Umeda


Whity Umeda (originally named "Umeda Chika Center" when it opened in 1963) is a large underground shopping arcade which is directly connected with most of the train stations in Umeda. There are a variety of stores and restaurants that are suited for a wide range of consumers.
Its labyrinthine underground walkway, 1.6 kilometers long in total, is so complex that even local residents sometimes have trouble finding their way around. However, getting lost is half the fun and you will have a chance to check out every store and restaurant here. The complex also links to other shopping facilities, such as Hanshin / Hankyu department stores, Hankyu Sanban-gai and DIAMOR Osaka.

I want to do the Whity Umeda escape game, but apps are by lottery only... and it looks terrifying.

Pretty sure I just saw a vampire woman in the Whity Umeda underground.

This seems both possible and impossible.
