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

Absolutely fabulous! If in Osaka you really need to go up the 256 meters for a spectacular view! It was really quiet Sunday morning and the 600 odd yenes really worth it!

Wonderful view of Osaka Bay. Best for Sun Set. Don't miss. It is also included in Osaka Amazing Pass. The view made us fail in love with Osaka.
