Department Store Business

Hankyu Hanshin Department Stores, Inc. currently operates  a total of 15 department stores, with this business comprised of Hankyu and Hanshin department stores. As Hankyu we have seven department stores in the Kansai region, three in the Kanto region and one in the Kyushu region, and as Hanshin we have four stores in the Kansai region.


We aim for the most enjoyable department store by realizing joyful and affluent lifestyle for customer, enriching their hearts and empowering their future. In order to realize this vision, we are promoting value creation and OMO (Online Merges with Offline) business model. 

The Hankyu Umeda Main Store is not only a retailer of goods and services, but it was completely rebuilt to have a grand opening in 2012 as a “theater-like department store” which delivers the cultural value underlying those goods and services. It is the flagship store which serves as the representative face of our corporate group, draws customers from throughout Japan and the world and boasts the largest department store sales in western Japan.

The Hanshin Umeda Main Store was completed and celebrated its grand opening on April 6, 2022 as a department store that makes customers happy every day. "Navigators" who convey the charm of the store connect with customers and establish a fan community.


We are building a unique OMO style that connects with a wide range of customers both in real and digital terms by refining real stores, such as the remodeling of  the Kobe Hankyu and the Takatsuki Hankyu.
