  • Tourist attractions near the station, to the top of the scenery is absolutely stunning, the view of Osaka. If in the evening time, sunset landscape more points.
  • Romantic scenery. Suitable for couple to go, especially in the evening time.
  • Beautiful night view! It is just too many people, difficult to take a photo. But far from the station, it is easy to go.
  • The sweetest place on earth! Go there at night. RIght place to have a romantic moment with your lovely person. Great view from the roof. And also you can have a heart-shaped padlock to hang on the spesific fence.
  • Amazing despite the long wait. But the view is magnificent, very clear crisp view of the entire Osaka city. One of the best that I've been (I've been to NYC, Chicago and seattle).
