Jump Shop at Osaka Daimaru Department Store

Situated on the 9th floor of Osaka’s Shinsaibashi Shopping District, Daimaru Department Store presents a different atmosphere compared to typical department stores found in South Korea. While traditional department stores in Korea generally handle clothing and accessories, often focusing on luxury brands, Japanese department stores also allocate space for selling “character goods,” creating an eye-catching experience.

“Jump Shop at Osaka Daimaru Department Store”

Jump refers to the manga magazine we encountered during our childhood. While it may be challenging to find “Jump” magazines in South Korea nowadays, in Japan, it seems to be thriving. Continuously serializing new manga works, Jump has maintained its legacy. Many renowned works have been serialized through Jump, including “Slam Dunk” in our childhood and more contemporary works like “One Piece.” Consequently, at Daimaru Department Store, you can witness the presence of characters like Luffy from “One Piece.”

“Explore Various Character Goods at Jump Shop”

Having hosted numerous manga artists who passed through Jump, it naturally boasts a variety of Intellectual Property (IP). Consequently, you can easily find character goods related to these IPs. From nostalgic Slam Dunk to One Piece and various other famous works, you can enjoy exploring character goods.

Additionally, on the same floor, you can find the “Pokémon Center.” It’s recommended to explore both the Jump Shop and the “Pokémon Center” located across from each other while visiting the 9th floor of Daimaru Department Store.

This unique store, not commonly seen in South Korea, allows those with memories of Jump manga during their childhood to revisit and reminisce.
