  • A futuristic place. I've never seen anything like it. The elevator too fast and phenomenal views. Then there's the escalator at the top of the building. The view of the neighbouring buildings and streets that are getting smaller and smaller as we go up is something indescribable. Best view at night.

  • When I went from being close to the station under construction around the destination had tied some. But not far away, and very popular place where a lot of people follow by Bonnie were able to arrive unnoticed. Night view of Osaka came into Bonnie that stay too long clean facilities good.

  • From Osaka Station walking 15 minutes. Around tall buildings on the other, very emphatic. Concatenates the two buildings on the top floor, the making of artificial ground on. Round up and overlooking the city of Osaka in a 360-degree, during the day, of course, enjoy a beautiful urban night scene at night. So you can walk around, feeling the breeze from a couple families — many of who is popular. Particular foreign country is more recently.
