Tokyo has the soaring Tokyo Skytree, and now Osaka has Abeno Harukasu, a 60-story, 300m-high skyscraper opened in spring 2014. This is the highest building in Japan, overtopping Landmark Tower in Yokohama (296m). The name Harukasu is an ancient word used in the Heian period (794-1185) meaning 'to make (people's heart) cheerful'.
The 1.3 billion-yen construction was led by the Kintetsu group, and the building stands above a terminal with railways such as Kintetsu, JR and subways entering into this hub in the south of Osaka City. The 16 lower floors, including underground, are occupied by Kintetsu Department Store, and there are an art museum and a roof garden on the 16th floor and a 360-degree observation deck on the 58-60th floors. Other floors are for Osaka Marriott Miyako Hotel and office spaces. This is a must-see when you come to Osaka.

Very new and sparkling clean. Lots of shops of all sorts. Food floor also has a huge diversity of places to eat.
Just be prepared for the totally indifferent Osaka attitude.

Absolutely jam-packed with fashion and cosmetics brands as well as a good assortment of sweets shops and restaurants as well. The view from the top is stunning too and Tennoji Station and MIOs are right next door for even more shopping and food.

his place was a great view of the city and a bunch of great places to enjoy. The two story observation deck was amazing. The top floor had a 360 degree view of the city while the bottom floor of the observation deck help a cafe, shabu shabu, and an amazing garden to lose yourself in.
