Umeda is located in the Kansai area, which is connected to the main cities of Tokyo,
Nagoya, and Fukuoka by bullet train, expressways, and air routes.
It therefore offers tremendous potential for doing business in Japan. In addition, Kansai International Airport and other facilities are about one hour closer than gateways to Tokyo.
The Kansai area has an economic scale comparable on a national scale to
South Korea and Indonesia. It is an urban area bustling with energy and ranks highly for
international competitiveness and convenient city living.
