The Nishi-Shinsaibashi area (formerly Sumiyacho) was called “Sumiyacho” in the old days, as charcoal was collected from Osaka Bay through the Dotonbori River.
As the years progressed to the 1970s, the quiet warehouse district was transformed into cafes, boutiques, live houses, and studios by local creators, and today it has evolved into a district of street culture that leads the most vibrant youth culture in the Kansai region. Namely “Shinbura”, this region is well known both in Japan and abroad.
MERCURE TOKYU STAY OSAKA NAMBA, a new double-branded hotel of “Mercure” and “Tokyu Stay,” will become an “Atelier Hub” through the interactions rooted in the local community.
