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.
