  • Was in the area on the way to the Sky Building. We had to go through an underground passage since there was construction being done. The place was fairly quite and empty particularly later at night wh...  more »
  • I went on TV to foreigners was reportedly popular, so let's go again. Only a short stroll from the Grand reception staff. And as is in the top-floor square connected two buildings, there is prospect square, round up and can turn. Found out why and overlooking the city of Osaka, there is very interesting, so popular with foreign residents.

  • It's not very difficult, but it can go up high to view the city of Osaka around. it's pretty good. The outside of the building too strong wind.

  • 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!
