The Umeda Skybuilding is well worth a visit. It's just a short walk from Osaka Central Station and the Hankyu Station. Entrance is JPY700 for adults. On the open roof top you are 173m above Osaka and you have 360 degrees views. Just below the open deck there is the obilgatory cafe and shop. The unusual the elevators that you have to ride for the last part of the journey to the top (or first part going down), are a highlight.
Boundless building landscape from the 40th floor, 170m from the ground, at Umeda Sky Building. You can overlook a dynamic panorama of 360 dgrees.It is worth paying 700 yen !
You can enjoy a glorious view also if you visit at twilight time, especially from late fall to early winter.

Osaka is a big city with 9 million inhabitants. A big part of the city can be seen from the top of Umeda Sky Building. The Umeda Sky Building offers a 360° view at 173 meters high.
The Umeda Sky Building is open from 10:00 am to 10:30 pm(admission until 10:00pm). And the views at night are even better than at daytime. As admission fee is 700 Yen (2001 price) it is advisable to go in the late afternoon and wait until it is dark to see the nightview. You can wait at the 40th floor for the sun to set in the Sky Cafe.
Climb the Umeda Sky Bulding, entry is about 700 yen but once on the top you can join a great view of the city. In the underground floors there a reconstruction of the ancient japan, with a lot of little restaurants.
Nice view on the city and hanging escalators.
I really enjoyed going up to the top where I was by myself except for the security guard. The view is absolutely great. Entry fee 700 Yen.
Nothing much to do in this building, but it is nice to look at anyway! One side is office space, the other has stores and some restaurants. I believe you can go to the top, but it costs some yen...
