Deep Backstreet Osaka Tours

565 reviews
Experience the real Osaka with a local guide, who will take you to some of the city's most intriguing neighborhoods. Most tourists stick to the same places and rarely dig beneath the surface to discover the more gritty neighborhoods, where some shady dealings occur. Tour these places safely, and learn about the culture and history of Osaka, with your half-Japanese, half-Australian guide.

This place provided great Observation Desk. I would suggest to come during night because the view is really nice.

It’s definitely a great place to go if you want some good views of Osaka. Definitely worth the price of admission. Going during the day is great, but go in the evening for dope night views!

Fantastic views are to be had from the top of the Umeda sky building. Unlike many other observatories, you can enjoy the views from indoors and outdoors. Great fun trying to pick out landmarks like the castle and where the airport is. Nice cafe as well. Would also be stunning after dark.

We used Osaka Amazing Pass for this. Entrance fee is 700 yen for child above 4 yo (who do not have OAP). It is located at Umeda Sky building, which is quite far to walk from Umeda Station. Excellent view at night. Very recommended!

This is part of the Umeda sky building and well worth the entrance fee for the superb views both from the inside observation floor and the outdoor rooftop observation deck. Getting to these is an experience in itself, with the outdoor lift followed by the amazing futuristic escalators going across the space between the two halves of the building! ON a clear day, as we had, you really can see a very long way indeed - makes you realise just how huge Osaka is!
