The consortium of Xymax Corporation (head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo) (Kenji Yoshimoto, CEO) and Nagoya Railroad Co., Ltd. (head office: Nakamura-ku, Nagoya city) (Takashi Ando, CEO) was awarded a contract to provide operation services for the retail space constructed under the Nagoya City Subway Fushimi Station Ekinaka Project*. The basic agreement was signed between the consortium and Nagoya City Traffic Bureau.
We will work together by combining the know-how of Xymax Group in planning, developing and leasing retail properties in Japan and the know-how of Meitetsu (Nagoya Railroad) Group in developing and operating shopping malls at train stations. Our goal is to increase the value of the Fushimi station and surrounding area and to make the retail space a loving place where local people and visitors gather around and be happy.
The details are provided below.

Many different things are mixed in the town of Fushimi. The entrance gate of Fushimi will be a place to have fun ("machi" or town); no longer a place just to pass by ("michi" or road).
