Up here, you can walk around the floor to see scenery of Osaka city in 360 degrees. Plus, the view during daytime and nighttime will give you totally different feels. Personally, it is worth to visit in the late afternoon, so that you will get to see both at one visit. Also twilight makes this place much more romantic if you plan to bring your partner here.
There are café and restaurant at the central area of the floor. You can still see the view from here, that’s why this place is very popular as a dating spot for lovers or a place to do lunch or dinner party. There are also events or promotions during the seasonal time such as BBQ menu during summer, or beer set during winter. Please check the link for more detail.
