This is yet another shopping paradise which is more suitable for teenagers who made up the majority of the people I have seen in this mall. There is also a ferris wheel on top of the mall.

This shopping and restaurant complex in Umeda is famous for the two mother and calf sperm whales in red. It also has a partly indoor ferris wheel . A large VR entertainment centre is also in the same building. Thats about it.

My 13 year old daughter loved this place. She loves Japanese teen clothing. Sailor suits, short pleated skirts and puffy sleeved tops. My 11 year old son liked the whale hanging from the foyer.

Get to the line for the ferris wheel from inside the shopping mall :) The queue was super long and the ride was quite short! But overall the view was quite nice - we rode it at night. :)

When I revisited this shopping center second time after two years. The place was better set up in comparing last time. However that made it a little bit boring. I still able to buy my clothing but we decide to go soon after.
