Aerial Garden Observatory
The observation platform of this observatory is a bridge connecting the two towers of the Umeda Sky Building, whose roof features a doughnut shape that provides an unobstructed 360-degree view, allowing you to enjoy full view of the city of Osaka from 170 metres off the ground.
Osaka Castle is noted for its magnificence and immense stones used in its construction.
The castle, towering over the city, stands on a stone rampart. Many relics of the Toyotomi who built the castle originally and Old Osaka are exhibited inside.
Enjoy a 60-minute boat ride with passing views of Osaka Castle, Twin Towers, and City Hall on Nakanoshima Isle.
