Visited the Osaka Prefectural Government Sakishima Building in late March 2014.
The building is also know as Cosmo Tower, and it is a short 10-minute walk from the Trade Center Mae Station. Entrance fee up to the observatory tower is JPY500 per person. Be sure to grab a brochure at the counter, as it will be helpful to identify buildings/ sights from the observatory tower. There is a cafe on the 55th floor if you need a place to snack.
We took the lift up to 53rd floor, and from there a long escalator all the way to 55th floor, where the observatory tower is situated. We were there at around 5pm on a Saturday. It wasn't overly crowded, so we were able to pick a nice spot and wait for the sunset. Sunset was around 6.10pm on that particular day, and lasted for only 5-10 minutes. Sunset view was amazing, so was the night view.
