Illuminated Underground Malls

Christmas colors of Diamor & Hilton Plaza in East Umeda

Last weekend, on December 12th, I dropped by at Nikon Plaza inside Hilton West Plaza to get my camera fixed.

Since I had the camera in my hands, on my way back home I strolled around Umeda to take some photos. Fortunately, December is the season of illuminations, and I walked around the underground malls to find good objects. I passed couples or office workers who were heading home. Everybody was walking very fast, with different facial expressions. Seeing their busy faces and busy steps in malls illuminated for the Christmas and New Year, one of the busiest times of the year, made me feel very busy too!

Gorgeous lights!
Walking around Umeda on Saturday night and enjoying the feel of “urban Osaka“ in October. It was pretty with the lamps and can`t imagine how beauty that area during winter especially when it illuminated^^
