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.
