One of Osaka's most recognizable landmarks, Umeda Sky Building is best known for its rooftop observatory, which provides panoramic views of the city. Completed in 1993, the building features two 40-story glass and steel towers linked by a bridge--which serves as the observation platform--173 m (568 ft) off the ground. The urban garden with walking trails and water fountains at the base of the towers serves as a popular recreation spot, while the underground gourmet market revives the atmosphere of the early 20th-century Osaka. Our Osaka day trip planning tool makes visiting Umeda Sky Building and other Osaka attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The lookout which is located almost on the top will give you amazing open view to Osaka. Amazing modern city from one end to another. I can recommend to visit the lookout to get an idea how big the city actually is. It's also nice place for weddings or for photo-shooting.
  • NOV 2019 We came here with Holiday decors, huge christmas tree, german village. And the view from the topmost observatory is beautiful.
