IMS (Inter Media Station) is a shopping mall located a three minute walk from Tenjin Station. It has a wide range of upmarket shops and restaurants. Admittedly I did not go to IMS for the shopping but rather for the futuristic architecture of the building. The sheer scale of this building makes me a little dizzy. Go down to the basement floor and look up at the ceiling for an amazing view. The fourteen floors of the building form concentric circles when viewed from this angle. I went to view the building during the day; however, I think night time may be even better when all the lights come on.
