A super modern building “Floating Garden Observatory” (Umeda Sky Building)
The observation platform of this observatory is a bridge connecting the two towers of the Umeda Sky Building, whose roof is a doughnut shape that provides an unobstructed 360-degree view. While enjoying the breathtaking sights you can also directly feel the wind―which at 170 meters off the ground can get quite strong. From this observatory you cannot only see all of Osaka but as far away as Awaji Island. The basement of the building houses the Takimi-Koji gourmet street with old- fashioned images of Osaka from the 1920s.
