"high Architecture" Umeda Sky Building Tip by Bela_LUng

Umeda Sky Building, Osaka: 16 reviews and 24 photos

One thing about Japan that struck me was the absolutely beautiful architecture. The country seems to have decided that they'd only build cool looking buildings.

The Umeda Tower is exactly that - it looks awesome fron the bottom or the top. The building itself is located along some cool scenery. The park around it has a water fall in which the water goes UP! That's tryely Japanese :)

To get to the sky deck you must go to the third floor of the east Umeda sky building. It cost about 700 yen which takes you to the 39th floor,. From there you cross the span between the two buildings and reach the sky deck from which you can see Osaka 360-degrees.

It's an awesome place to visit for the view alone. If you are into cool buildings then you'll like this one. The surrounding area is also cool.
