Really happy I came here, the view of the sunset was gorgeous. It's just a 10 minutes of slow walk from the station, and pretty easy to navigate to.

Another Amazing pass free attraction. Was not sure what to expect as the lift was nothing special, but when we left the lift we had to go up the longest escalator I've ever seen, & once up the top the views were spectacular.

We went here at 8 pm. The place is so quiet and less crowded than Umeda Sky Building. There are only a few people (less than ten) at that time. This observatory is included in 2-day Osaka Amazing Pass. All we need is to show...More

Also know as Cosmo Tower (previously: Osaka World Trade Center Cosmo Building), this stylish tower was the highest building in Osaka (and he second highest in Japan, just after the Yokohama Landmark Tower) - before the bulky Abeno Harukas was built. First or second highest...More
