In April 2015, renewal work over six years has been completed at Hankyu Osaka-umeda Station. The station has been renewed for more comfortable use, pursuing convenience and luxury. On the first floor, the Hankyu Tourist Center Osaka Umeda is located to provide tourism information in four languages, as well as other services that help foreign tourists take convenient trips through this gateway to Osaka.
Personnel at the center provide services in Japanese, English, Chinese, and Korean. The center also has Internet access with Wi-Fi and PCs, as well as booklets for tourists, thereby securely supporting travels to Osaka, Kyoto, and Kobe.
