Centara Hotels & Resorts, Thailand's leading hotel operator, together with Taisei Corporation and Kanden Realty & Development, completed the official ground-breaking ceremony and sake dedication, known as "jichinsai", to mark the beginning of construction of the 34-storey Centara Grand Hotel Osaka. The ceremony took place recently at the Safety Prayer Festival at Namba Shrine near the Centara Grand Hotel Osaka site.

According to Japanese tradition, before any new construction can begin, a jichinsai ceremony must be held to purify the ground and seek the blessing of the local gods. Shinto priests lead the ceremony, and sake is used as one the main elements that will be sprinkled across the ground where the new construction is planned. Special sake bottles for each of the three partner companies were specially produced for the ceremony.

Centara Grand Hotel Osaka is Centara's first property in Japan and is scheduled to open in mid-2023. The newly built hotel is an upper upscale property with 515 keys that will occupy a gleaming 34-storey tower on a prime site in Osaka's Namba district, the centre of leisure tourism for the city and the wider Kansai region.
