  • When I went, it was raining the entire day so I could not see the sunset and I was a bit disappointed. However, the open-deck view of the building would be quite good if it was not raining.  more »
  • Location at the station for the traffic Arteries, building I reserve some time to stay here for an hour. View the urban night scene. Free of charge is worth it. If you have time, you can shop in the big pill.

  • Views of Osaka! even to go to the observation deck near the top floor (forgot what floor?...) From there can go go Bill and Bill passage overlooks the Osaka 10 minutes from there.

  • This was so worth the trip to Osaka city. 207 ish meters high up with an amazing 360 degree view over the entire city. I'd recommend that you get here in good time before sunset, at least an hour before, to be able to get good seats. It is really nice to see the city both in day light and then at night with all the neon and city lights. They also have a deck you can go to. No smoking and no hats since there is a risk for those to fly away. We highly recommend this place, also don't forget to bring your camera and snacks. There is a cafe if you forget to bring snacks with you and you can buy there for a okay price. Deapite it being an cloudy and windy day it was without a doubt quite a powerful experience.
  • Beautiful at night time. Enjoyed the star walk and the city lights
  • Awesome view and experience for the price. You can see all of Osaka from the top. I recommend visiting this place at sunset.
  • Skyscraper and skydeck, overall view 360 degree
  • Can probably see most of it without paying to go to the top observatory
