umeda 梅田

umeda 梅田(うめだ)is one of the main shopping areas and transit interchanges in osaka. umeda station is the main hub of the hankyu train line in osaka, and from both it and nearby JR osaka station it's convenient to transfer to the osaka subway system.

loft

loft umeda address:

日本大阪府大阪市北区茶屋町16−7

loft is a little bit similar to tokyu hands, with housewares and a great selection of stationary products.

muji (inside loft)

the muji at umeda is the top floor (8th) of loft.

the closest exit from the hankyu station to loft/muji is the chayamachi exit, which also leads right past a ghibli character goods shop (tottoro, etc.) inside the station, and is very close to a yummy bagel and bagel cafe that faces the street be is in the station building.

kinokuniya

one of the japanese giant bookstore chains (see more about japanese bookstores here). inside hankyu umeda station, it's very convenient especially if you are transferring between the hankyu and subway. this branch tends to be quite crowded, and the craft book selection is a little limited and thumbed through, but worth a look.
