  • It is a unique building, metal and glass. Floating garden is called, but there are no flowers anywhere... The panoramic views of Osaka are beautiful. Access to the top floor is fun, is not for the classic elevator it is customary to have in this kind of buildings, rises by escalators that provide even a greater charm. Osaka I didn't, is very industrial with no charm, apart from this building,

  • Romantic place for couples, especially at night. You can see far far away, really amazing at night. Free of charge if you got the one day or two days travel pass.

  • 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!
