Umeda Sky Building (Kuchu Teien Observatory)
One of the landmarks of Umeda, Osaka. On the top is the Floating Garden Observatory, where Osaka's cityscape can be viewed from a height of 170 meters.
The observation platform of this observatory is a bridge connecting the two towers of the Umeda Sky Building, whose roof features a doughnut shape that provides an unobstructed 360-degree view. While enjoying the breathtaking sights you can also directly feel the wind―which at 170 meters off the ground can get quite strong. From this observatory you can not only see all of Osaka but as far away as Awaji Island. The basement of the building houses the Takimi-Koji gourmet street with old fashioned images of Osaka from the 1920s.
