Birdseye View of Osaka

As seen from the Umeda Sky Building

By Elena Lisina    - 1 min read

When you’re on the ground it’s hard to understand the size of a city. So, when I have a chance I like to observe a city from the tallest building. The view is always exciting! In Osaka, I went to Umeda Sky Building. The 173-meter tall building consists of two main towers connected with each other by the "Floating Garden Observatory" on the 39th floor. The design of Umeda was inspired by famous skyscrapers of New York and futuristic projects of Russian architects of the 1920’s. The Floating Garden Observatory is open every day from 10:00am to 10:30pm. There are no closing days and entrance to the building is accepted until 10:00pm. The admission fee is ¥800.

I love Japan very much! I like small towns of Japan where I can watch people doing their business and talk to them carefully. They're always friendly. I like Japanese gardens where I can just sit or walk and take my time. Also I like Shinto Jinja as being there I feel in peace. I like to watch sunsets and then to dine in some small local places. I like to soak into onsen after a long day of wandering. I like Japanese crafts very much as all items are made with great taste and skill. Nihon wo daisuki desuyo! My photos from Japan I also place here: Matane!
