There is nothing special about this mall. If your Japanese size and a women there are hundreds of boutiques there. However there isn't much else in variety.

It's a very clean, pretty, mall with 5 floors. The food court on the far end of the bottom floor. There are various stores with anything you could possible want, There's also a Toho Cinema on the 5th floor. I found that the stores on the 2nd floor are overpriced, so I recommend shopping at Izuma or the bottom floor.... More

Been there for so many times. It's a quiet big mall with about 5 floors. If you go there just for shopping, I don't recommend you if you wanna find some cheap things. Mostly the shops are not Japan brand. The only cheap shop is just Uniqlo and it is not too big. But if you just want to enjoy... More

A rare shopping mall in Japan with space and avoiding the usual 8~9 floors format so maybe a tiny bit more pleasant than usual but very crowded in week-ends and still nothing more than a shopping mall... Good food court though if you can find a table to sit !

Hankyu Gardens is conveniently located by the Hankyu Train line. It has everything for every shopper. The floors are strategically designed and shops are placed for your convenience. The restaurant row on the 4th floor has every variety of cuisine imaginable

I've been here countless times, both for movies and shopping. There aren't a lot of choices if you're a guy, but there is always Uni Qlo. If you're a girl then you're spoiled for choice, lucky you! The best times to go are at the end of summer and winter for all the big sales. The food court is also... More

It is convenient being part of the Hankyu railway station. It has all the major retailers so you do not need to go to Osaka or Kobe to satisfy your buying needs. The restaurant floor is pretty good. Italian, Hawaiian, Chinese and different Japanese dining styles. Restaurants that cater to different price points. This is NOT a destination mall but... More

i dont know why its says Operas. its a boring mall with crappy stores. only go there if its the closest place to see a movie. But really its not worth shopping there. the only other good thing there is the sasebo burgers on the first floor
