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.

Kuchu Teien Observatory Reviews
Wir waren gegen 20:00 hier, super Zeitpunkt, da keine Warteschlange und durch die Lichter wird es erst schön! Gang auf den skywalk lohnt sich auch. more »We were here around 8p, great time since no queue and through the lights it will be nice! Going on the skywalk is also worth it.
明るいうちに展望台に登りました。 まずは、日中の眺めを見て感動。そして、夕陽～サンセット。これも感動。そしてそして、夜景。これもまた感動！ 日の入り前に入場するのが良さそうです!! more »I climbed the observatory while it was bright. First of all, I was impressed to see the view during the day. And sunset. I was impressed by this, too. And then, the night view. This is also impressive! It seems to be good to enter before sunset!!
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. This is definitely one of the spots you want to visit if you do have the pass. This building provides a nice expansive view of Osaka. 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.
