Obviously the sign it's attched to means "No Entry".

Literally, "koko" is "here", and "made" is "as far as". So the phrase is "as far as here" - but no further, of course

Osaka Railway Station Redevelopment

My God! I'm so jealous!

How on Earth can Japan continue to build boxes and yet each of them still remain spectacular, magnificent and elegant-looking!

While the rest of the world try hard to outdo one another in building ever more audacious and majestic projects from China to Dubai, Japanese cities like to stick to the basics and still manage to astound us with these bold and grand and yet stubbornly conservative and uniquely minimalist architecture. I just love post-Modern Japanese architecture.

If there's another thing I've noticed...it's the fondness of redevelopment projects by the Japanese. I like this idea. It can better address the problems of excess capacity brought about by overconstruction.

WOW!

Jesus!

41 stories just for a department store?!?!?!?!?

I mean 10 stories is already VERY HIGH/VERY TALL by current standards.

Maybe it includes a mall in it (along with the department store as one of the main areas). What if the mall only takes up like 5-10 then the other 25-30 floors/stories are for office use?

But seriously coldstar, are you telling me/us that those 41 stories/floors will all be used for the mall (and not just a small portion)?

Is this really an attempt to build the WORLD'S TALLEST SHOPPING MALL EVER?

Yes, right.
Hanshin Department Store will occupy the lower floors and the higher floors will be used as offces.

Osaka Station area (called 'Umeda') is at the cutting edge of the retailing competition more than Tokyo.

Hankyu Department Store is also being rebuilt into 187m tower (41 stories).

Osaka Staion's North Tower is now under construction. (150m. 28 floors)
Mitsukoshi Department Store is to be the tenant of it.

Osaka Station's South Tower (122m. 27 stories) is now under refurbishment and its annex (15 floors) is under construction.

Daimaru Department Store is to move in the annex as well as South Tower.

New attraction of Universal Studios Japan (USJ) in Osaka comes next week
It's Holloywood Dream the Ride
It's Asia's first roller coaster you can experience 'minus gravitational world'!
And you can choose your favorite music with individual audio equipment of the seat during the ride (world's first), and relax in new concept classy seat.
