Take your Osaka sightseeing experience to new heights and be awed by panoramic views across the city. The Umeda Sky Building is an imposing futuristic landmark right in the heart of downtown Osaka, soaring 173 meters above the city. The Floating Garden Observatory, known locally as Kuchu Teien, offers a sublime 360-degree views across the city, from the breezy open deck. This innovative, in-the-round vantage point means every single corner of the city can be seen, providing magnificent sweeping vistas far and wide. Beyond the modern city skyline, clear day views stretch all the way to Awaji Island, some 100 km away.
The ‘floating escalator’ takes you across the open air from the East to West Tower, arriving just below the observation deck. There is a casual restaurant and cafe available on the 39th floor where you can grab a bite, and gaze over the city through the large picture windows. The Floating Garden offers an incredibly natural feeling, looking out over the city in the warm sunshine and breezes. As such, local couples flock here to stroll along the ‘Sky Walk’ and gaze at the sunset, leaving love locks at the beautifully illuminated Lumi Deck.
