A masterpiece of the japanese architect Hiroshi Hara. Is impressive the Observatory up with a huge view of the city. Close to the main station.

This is in a modern, new commercial area, with many name-brand hotels. The observation deck was relatively expensive, and we felt that we had a great 360 degree city overview from Osaka Castle, so passed on this one.

I’m not sure what we were expecting from the Umeda Sky Building, but it was more than what we got as we were left somewhat underwhelmed. Yes the views are of course stunning, given the height you are observing it from, but aside from the...More

Entrance fee per person is about $17CAD which made it expensive for the 30 minutes or so we spent here. We walked along the observation deck but it was 34C degrees and right in the summer sun so it was a little too hot to...More
