  • Other than the escalator connecting the two building, nothing special. A more quite area, no public transport to go other than taxi.  more »
  • Not so crowded like Namba and plenty of good shopping places and good food. Easily accessible by subway and trains.  more »
  • It is a landmark feel eclipsed like a grand reception is ready, stand out in Umeda. From the Grand Hotel underground can be reached in about 5 minutes. You through work when I come on weekdays, only by foreigners was nearly empty.

  • Most of the observatory deck on top of skyscrapers in Japan are indoor only (means glass wall exist), but this one has an open top available for visitors (maybe closed due to bad weather), so you can take great photos and won't be blocked by glass. Highly recommended if you love taking sunset/night scene, during new year they even have a special opening hour for people to view the first sun rise in the year!
  • Terrific 360 degree view of the cityscape. Our timing was perfect because it was right at sunset!!! Yes, absolutely worth it!
  • For a spectacular city over view.
  • Nice place to go in Osaka. The view is great and the price is reasonable for Japan. Sometimes you also get a discount if you buy the ticket in your hotel.
  • It's worth seeing!
