Travel Guide - Umeda Sky Building (Floating Garden Observatory)

InformationInformation

Umeda Sky Building is a twin-tower complex with the two towers jointed at the top. The double skyscraper standing at the center of Kita district in Osaka is called "The Arch of Triumph in Naniwa (Osaka)". You can walk to the building through an underground passage which heads north from Osaka or Umeda Station.
The building has two observation galleries called "Floating Garden Observatory", an outdoor one on the roof and an indoor one on the floor below. From 170 meters above the ground, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the city of Osaka and Osaka Bay including Awaji-shima Island. The sunset and night view from there is especially impressive. Getting to the top of the building is half the fun as you take a glassed-in escalator for the final five stories. Tickets for the observatory can be purchased on the 3rd floor of the east tower. There is also a Chinese restaurant and bar at the top. The restaurant and bar can be reached for free by a conventional elevator.
