According to two recent studies from the Economist Intelligence Unit, Osaka is one of the world's best places to live, coming third in the Spatially Adjusted Liveability Index and being the top Asian city in the Global Liveability Survey.
Small wonder then that Osaka is also a hot business destination, with the population surging by a million on an average business day.
To accommodate them, Osaka has several top hotels and serviced offices, with The St. Regis Osaka and Servcorp serviced offices in Shinsaibashi among the best.
Located on Mido-suji Avenue, the business-orientated St. Regis Osaka boasts one of the city's most prestigious addresses, located amid leading corporations, major institutions and luxury boutiques.
The hotel is under an hour's drive from the airport and there are subway stations close by that link it to such venues as the Osaka International Convention Centre and the Central Public Hall.
The plush guestrooms all come with such amenities as high-definition flat-screen televisions and Blu-ray DVD/CD players, with all guests enjoying the luxury of the signature St. Regis butler service.
Onsite is a flexible meeting space and banquet room. There is also the sizable 210 square metre Astor ballroom alongside a well-equipped business centre.
Several unique dining experiences are available, ideal for working business meals, while the spa is a perfect after-hours escape.
Ten minutes away are Servcorp's newest Osaka serviced offices, located in a premium building on Mido-suji Avenue, one of Osaka's main commercial and business hubs.
Appealing highpoints of the professionally furnished centre include a dedicated reception area, a business lounge, flexible workspaces, fast, reliable internet connections, video-conferencing facilities and a pantry.
Monthly Virtual Office packages start at 13,000 yen (HK$1,265) and meeting-room packages at 8,000 yen.
