The sprawling Osaka City can be viewed from the top of the Umeda Sky Building, a futuristic twin-tower complex located at the center of the Kita district of Osaka. Affectionately dubbed "Arc de Triomphe of Osaka", the 170 meter-high complex has an 360-degree observatory at the top.

The observation deck, selected as one of the 100 most beautiful sunset-watching spots in Japan, is also a place to marvel at million-dollar night views. The restaurants and cafes on the 40th floor offer relaxation with good views. To take home a lasting moment of Osaka experience, drop in at souvenir shops on the 39th floor.

Very interesting architecture! Pro tip: you can go nearly to the top FOR FREE! You can see just about everything you would be able to see from the top but that costs ¥1500. Not worth it in my opinion.

Also had a fun gift shop and a cute window for a photo op. Restroom is off to the left if you need one.

Another tip: get there about half hour before sunset. We got here at this time by accident but the sky was just turning golden AND we beat the crowds 🙌🏼

Free with the Osaka Amazing Pass before 6 PM which is good. Offers you a view of the skyline of Osaka, it’s not too spectacular but worth it if you are nearby. It’s a 10 minute walk from Osaka JR Station or 15 from Umeda Station. There are ton of shops and dinning options around here. It’s an icon of the bubble economy of japan in early 1990s.

Aw breathtaking! Sincerely. My-my! What a perfect timing. Big ball of glowing, simultaneously slowly drifting away sun, and me standing and allowing my mind to wonder far and beyond. Utterly sensational view which I am still holding close to my travelling heart. What a pleasure of yours and mine. A pair of skyscrapers connected in midair, Umeda Sky Building built in an unusual architectural form is said to be seldom encountered anywhere in the world. It has an open roof and 360-degree design, affording panoramic views of the city, and is known as a romantic and most scenic sunset viewing spot. Absolutely worthy.

Was here for the Sky Garden. A good place to view the Osaka city on top. There are few places you can view the city from top, this is one of the best, Even better if come in late afternoon, view the city in the day time, sunset time and also night time all in once. If you have an Amazing Pass, it's free entrance, but it's only applicable before 6PM. ps:

It was great place to see sunset and night skyline of Osaka. Pricing was great. I was lucky to go there without line at all. When I was on my way out, there was a long line for entry. Timing is important if you don't like long waiting lines.

Since I was born and grew up in Osaka, I know this spot well. By the way, there are many other tourists spots in Osaka City, such as Dotombori, Shinsaibashi and Osaka castle. I can also guide these spots. Please visit Osaka!
