While Osaka is home to plenty of historic
architecture, you mustn’t overlook the city’s modern, sky-grazing buildings,
particularly those in Umeda. One of the most distinctive and breath-taking
buildings in the city is the Umeda Sky Building, whose roof is home to arguably
the world’s best sky observatory. Nicknamed the ‘floating garden’, the tower’s
exterior viewing platform is built in a doughnut shape, allowing for a 360°,
uninterrupted view across the city and beyond to the distant Awaji Island. The
observatory is 170m above ground level and is exposed to the elements, so wrap-up.
