Take the elevator to Kuchu Teien Observatory to enjoy a panoramic view of Osaka's skyline. The viewing deck is located on the rooftop of one of the city's tallest buildings, a 173 m (567 feet) tall high-rise. Relish the encapsulating, 360-degree vista of the city from the top, and the ride in the inclined glass elevator along the way. Before you head down, drop by the rooftop cafe for a drink and a snack.

When I went, there were a bunch of shops and food stands at the base of the building. The observatory is included with the Osaka Amazing Pass.

Unfortunately, the garden was being renovated when I went, but the views are still worth it.
Smaller than I expected but rooftop garden was also temporarily closed due to repairs. Nice cafe with beers and ice cream to relax your feet after a long day of walking. Bonus: unexpected small German Christmas market below the observatory free for you to walk around in Dec.
