Go in the AM when the crowds have yet to show up. Excellent views of Osaka to get oriented in a 3D way that's not Google Earth. There's a cafe at the top if you want to sip a cuppa and enjoy the view. German...More

The first time I saw this building, many years back, I thought what a strange form it was. It's very creative. There is a nice observation deck, and you can walk across the gap is a mostly- glass walkway. Worth visiting.

Nice building. It’s just an observation tower/building. Went in the morning so not much people. Can enjoy the are peacefully. Spend about 1 hr there or less as nothing much to do. TOP floor close for repair due to typhoon.
