Takimikoji is located underneath the (very) corporate Umeda Sky Building. It's a somewhat cheesy recreation of a street in 1920s Japan. It lacks atmosphere - you're better off taking the 30-minute train to Kyoto and seeing the real thing. I wish someone had told us...More

This is a food complex in the basement of the Umeda Sky City building. The restaurants by themselves are not special, but the overall atmosphere is decorated to be retro 1950s Japanese. Gets crowded around noon lunchtime when the office workers come out.

It was a total waste of time, effort and money (taxi $20) to go there. Groups of restaurants like this is all over Japan especially in major shopping complexes and transportation hubs - Albeit not right next door to each other like Takinikoji. Uemda/Dojima underground...More
