All reviews umeda sky building glass elevator night view observation deck escalator ride love locks nice view osaka station city lights sky garden viewing area fear of heights osaka skyline top floor osaka amazing pass entrance fee long walk
Believe me, the view if awesome at all angels. You get to view the whole of Osaka city. It was really chilli up there in December. One of the best spots to be with family and friends for a memorable view and pictures.
I visited in Nov 2018 when the roof was closed due to storm damage- as it was just the viewing room I got to see I can only say I thought it was boring. I went during the day so maybe it's better at night....More
One of my favorite places when I visit a country is going to the highest place and admire the views. This is a nice place to end your day before heading for a nice dinner. You can see the whole Osaka!! So lucky there are...More
It was not so easy to find it due to some road works. From here you can see the major part of Osaka, first trought glass but than also from the top of the buildings. I suggest to came here in the night, it is...More
It cost 1500 yen to visit this observatory deck but the highest floor is closed due to the recent typhoon. The view from the deck is breathtaking. It could have been a 5 stars review if the highest floor is not closed. Definitely can have...More
On the top of this outstanding building about 300 meters high this is certainly a beautiful observatory, with beautiful views an fun attractions.
Strongly recommended when visiting Osaka and easily accessed through the subway system.

This is probably the best place I have been in. Even better than observatory of Manhattan.
You can even go outside and walk through a...More
I think it is best to arrive just prior to sunset so you can experience before, during, and after sunset. They have nice displays, a cafe with a view, a bar, a restaurant, and a gift shop. Lots to keep you busy. The views are...More

It is not free, but ticketing happens after you go up the building. There are four floors (including the roof garden) that are accessible after you go up the building (before paying), but the top two cannot be seen without the admission ticket. If you really want to have a look but you don't want to pay, I suggest that you can go up and look through windows (they are not the best because it shows the middle of the building and very little of Osaka's view) because there are restaurants and gift shop that is accessible to everyone. I do suggest you go up after paying though. It is beautiful to see it from the very top.
Hi all, I'm travelling to Osaka next month for 7 days. I just want to swing a rough itinerary to you for feedback. I'm travelling with a friend. Day 1 (Thursday): Arrive at Osaka airport at 9:35am. Allow time to find accomodation, unload luggage etc. Head to Osaka Castle Park. Then onto the Pokemon Centre (an absolute must according to my 8yo,) and seeing as how Hep 5 is nearby I'll add that in too. Day 2 (Friday): Universal Studios Day 3 (Saturday): Day tour of Hiroshima ...More

Universal Studios, Hiroshima and Kyoto are all good ideas. For Universal Studios, absolutely go there on either Friday or Monday and not on Saturday/Sunday (also check your dates to make sure you're not going on a public holiday). Some people will say Hiroshima is quite far away and you should stay in Kansai, but really it's completely doable by train so don't listen to that as it's well worth seeing. In addition to the peace memorial in Hiroshima (be aware if you have kids that the...More
Umeda Sky Building Observatory (5 Replies)
I understand the Kuchu Teien Observatory is closed due to damage from the typhoon. The website doesn't have any information beyond that. I will be in Osaka in a couple of weeks, and still have it on my itinerary, but am wondering if I should just go ahead and remove it. Is there anyone local who might have an idea as to when it is expected to reopen? Thanks in advance!

Nobody has more information than the official website gives. Just keep checking it if you really want to go. But keep in mind that another big typhoon is heading toward Japan. Abeno Harukas is a better observatory and operating normally. Look into it.
