One of Osaka's most recognizable landmarks, Umeda Sky Building is best known for its rooftop observatory, which provides panoramic views of the city. Completed in 1993, the building features two 40-story glass and steel towers linked by a bridge--which serves as the observation platform--173 m (568 ft) off the ground. The urban garden with walking trails and water fountains at the base of the towers serves as a popular recreation spot, while the underground gourmet market revives the atmosphere of the early 20th-century Osaka. Our Osaka day trip planning tool makes visiting Umeda Sky Building and other Osaka attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Umeda Sky Building Reviews
Ist mit Sicherheit einen Besuch wert. Das Gebäude selbst mit seiner beeindruckenden Architektur lohnt schon, den Block vom Dach über Osaka sollte auf keinen Fall versäumen. more »Is certainly worth a visit. The building itself with its impressive architecture is worth it, the block from the roof over Osaka should not miss.
一上去就看到滿滿的大阪府夜景跟先進城市該有的風貌，展網台玻璃也非常的乾淨無話可說一整圈360度讓你一覽無遺，在旁邊也有個咖啡吧可以購買餐點和飲料在那邊坐著享受夜景，真的很不錯，再往上走一層有露天的展望台吹風看美景又更美了比台灣台北101還要好幾百倍美景一定要去看 more »As soon as I go up to see the night scene of Osaka Prefecture and the city of the first look, the display table glass is also very dry can say a whole circle 360 degrees to let you a meal, there is also a coffee bar in the side can eat and materials in that sitting to enjoy the night scene, really not bad, Further up a look at the open-air viewing platform to see the beautiful scenery is even more beautiful than Taiwan Taipei 101 is also better than the beautiful scenery must be seen
Gorgeous building worth visiting at night, and would be even better at sunset. The sky deck is stunning and offers an incredible panoramic view of the city. We got in line 30 minutes prior to sunset and totally missed it while waiting so get here a full hour before your desired time. The sky deck is beautiful and worth spending a solid hour up there as the floor lights up and looks like UV-fed stars. The deck gets crowded but with a little patience you can get your own great spot for a photo
Open air, open air, open air view. The outdoor element improves the experience by a large margin. We also can stay there however long we want...with a reasonably priced cafe at lower level that has enough seats covering roughly two different perspective. Recommend checking out golden hours of the day and chill through sunset given you have enough time. Note: there was a minor line when I visited, probably just for safety in confined spaces.
