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.

Most amazing skyscraper in Japan. Compared to the ones in Tokyo this is better organized and spacious. They added the new Edge the Harukas walk which was a great experience. You get to walk on top of building with the view of Osaka around you. Don't miss this.

Very nice viewing deck! 🤓 one can have a 360-degree view of Osaka. Best time to visit is around 5pm-onwards so that you can see it in daytime then wait for sunset so that you can also view the cityscape in the night with all those lights. 😎

Go up to the sky observatory at night to enjoy the night view of Osaka. There is less people at night so you don't have to wait in a long line. This amazing night view will stay long in your memory as well as many good food you eat...
