Umeda Sky Building

Standing tall gracefully next to Osaka station and Umeda area, Umeda Sky building is one of popular spots to observe the scenery of Osaka city. With its height of 173 m and open roof top, you can enjoy the view in 360 degrees.

It seems there are couple of observation decks around Osaka. However, Umeda sky building is located nearby Yodogawa river in the northern area of the city. So, the riverside view is the highlight of this place.
