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.

At first I thought ¥1500 ?? Bit steep. However it is worth EVERY cent.
Just do it.
Do it now. Trust me it's breathtaking.

The 60th floor lookout was fabulous! At the time we went, there was an interactive light show on the windows and floor. The view was awesome and terrifying at the same time. This building has everything. Check out the 9th floor. They have special events showcasing merchandise from different prefectures.

Great mall, lots of variety of stores and eateries here of all price ranges. They have a 300 yen store where everything is - you guessed it - 300 yen! And they have some great fashion stores with styles from all over the world, not just Japanese fashion. There are higher end restaurants here as well as cheaper fast food casual joints. Great place to do a little shopping and dining before or after visiting the Harukas 300 Observation Deck or Tennoji Park.
