A bit of a walk to get there, but that's japan! Great 360 degree views, good to see just on sunset, go there.

Absolutely fabulous! If in Osaka you really need to go up the 256 meters for a spectacular view! It was really quiet Sunday morning and the 600 odd yenes really worth it!

Wonderful view of Osaka Bay. Best for Sun Set. Don't miss. It is also included in Osaka Amazing Pass. The view made us fail in love with Osaka.

Nice observatory but very much like the view from atop Hyatt Regency Osaka the view at night is peaceful and tranquil. It's also right next to ATC.
