The history of this tower is very interesting and you'll learn all about it on your visit. The views of Osaka are just amazing! Put it on your list of sights to see when in Osaka.

Having been to Umeda sky tower and back again with friends who have never been to Osaka we decided to visit Tsutenkaku instead. bad decision. The view was okay - not as high or spectacular as Umeda - but okay. The rest of the experience I couldn't decide if I was in a theme park or a supermarket specializing in... More

The very first tower I saw up close and personal in Kansai -- because it was well within Hotel Taiyo's comfort radius. Spot was basically about 2 blocks away from where my wife and I stayed for the night. Tsutenkaku, to me, is like the mini Eiffel Tower.

Having some time to kill, decided to go visit shinsaiken and the tsutenkaku tower. Nothing really exciting here and pretty dated place. There are some shows and comedy acts but all in Japanese so probably more suited to local tourist or kids on an outing.

Special quarter in Osaka with a lot of old shops and eateries. I happened to stay at a nearby hostel and went there before heading to Kyoto.

This place is located at Shinsekai.. So while you stroll around Shinsekai, just drop by this place to have a little view of whole Osaka from its observation deck. The fee is ¥700 and it will be better if you go with at least a friend. I went there at noon so nothing's really great from the deck. But you... More

Nice view on top of the tower. Went there on Christmas Day and the queue was pretty long. Not sure about other time though. Once you are up there, there's not much to do except for seeing the Osaka skyline. Lots of sponsored activities. They seem to have squeezed every square meter to make some profit :-P

I recently had the pleasure of being brought here by my Japanese friend to appreciate the autumn colors of Osaka. The viewing decks are large, there is a wide array of souvenirs and food choices to choose from which were very conveniently located. I also got to see how big the city if Osaka city is, and around this tower... More
