  • We were staying at the Cosmo Tower Hotel in the building complex, hence we decided to pay a Visit from above at the Observatory and it was so worth it ! Osaka is a large city, beautiful at 360°.  more »
  • Interesting, not sure if I would go again but we ended up there so we had a look around. City scape views. May not be of interest to everyone.  more »
