We went up towards the observatory, quite furious already that the entrance fee was apparently more than double of what our guidebook said, just to learn that you can enter the 40th floor shop for free (including a ride in the famous tube escalators) and...More

The tour up the building gives a great view over Ōsaka and a nice historical description of how it was build. Not lot of garden in the hanging garden.
