Very nice thing to do is in little time. It has great views and a extensive beer selection in the restaurant. If you fancy a movie you can also take that on the second floor.

Visited this attraction after reaching Osaka central JR station. The walk took about 20min, in the summer heat. The place was not packed and I managed to get in without queueing. The price of the ticket is 1500yen per adult, making it pricier than most...More

Good observatory and weather permitting you will get a good view of the city. Unfortunately we had a rainy day so visibility was poor.

If you are going by train and subway, it’s far too far.. go for other Ferris wheels or towers that are more accessible instead.

Walking distance from Osaka station, we visited in the morning when the sky was clear. We got free admission using the Osaka Amazing Day pass which was worth the ¥2500 as the entrance fee is ¥1000. Not a large place, but good for a bird's...More

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.

This observatory is a bit off the beaten path but worth the visit. Can be a little testy if you have a fear of heights though. There are 360 degree views from the top. The top deck is outside and it can get cold and...More

I'm torn on this. On one hand, the view of Osaka is cool and the building itself is impressive. On the other hand, it's a. It pricey for a jaunt up in an elevator to an overpriced cafe. If you really want to see Osaka...More
