I think it cost about 1000 yen to enter but it's well worth it! The views were absolutely stunning and I highly recommend timing it to go up when it's dark and you can see all the city lights! We spent quite a long time up there, it's easy to lose track of time up there.

I went during the afternoon and it was amazing. Beautiful views across Osaka. Only downside was due to the weather it was a bit hazy, however, I recommend trying to get here at night. Definitely recommend for those who don't mind heights

Amazing view at roof. you can get a beer or wine with your friend at the bar, while drinking, the awesome view is just right in front of your eyes. If you get a "Osaka amazing pass大阪周遊券" you can get to the roof once without any other fee. If you are going to the bar, the night view is better.... More

Best place to see the skyline view of Osaka. It looks so peaceful during the day. Matcha ice cream are sold upstairs.

This building is really nice and it's home to the sky garden you can go there but you have to pay around 1000 yen to reach the observatory,y personal opinion is keep the menu and go to the sky lounge restaurant or bar and u can use that money on a drink or food the view is still magnificent and...

Unfortunately the sunny Saturday ended with a sunset into the clouds, but the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge rooftop sky walk offered the best view of leaving day and arriving night. Having enough time up there allows you to get the best view of the night lights of Osaka Downtown.

A super high storey, beautiful night vision of Osaka. Ladies will be very happy with the overall setup of the observatory as well as the unblock skyline view. A must go!

We enjoyed our first stop in Osaka at Kuchu Teien Observatory. Was a 10 min walk from Umeda station. Cost 1000yen per pax. Worth the walk up the roof. Also a short coffee stop at cafe with superb view is recommended.

The best thing is the food and views around Namba. the observatory was good but just go there at night and experience it.

The view was beautiful! No regrets going up there (because I had the Osaka Amazing Pass and this was covered), but some of the people in my party didn't have the pass but decided to pay and come up with us-- it was a little expensive for what it's worth. The line to go up is very long, although it... More
