The viewing deck is located on the rooftop of one of the city's tallest buildings, a 173 m (567 feet) tall high-rise.

  • It takes fifteen minutes to go to Meitian, a little distance, and if there's Osaka Pass I'll go. The building is very special, to go through the aerial ladder on the observation platform, up to have a small restaurant there are many sit-down to take pictures. In addition, on the line on the outside of the outlook desk, a big, so no more than a hat, open cover and so on.... I went to it was raining heavily, going around, all my body was gone....

  • A scenic spot with a night view recommended for dating. It overlooks Osaka city. There are many tourists, but events such as Tanabata season and Christmas season are also held and you can enjoy them.

  • When I went, there were a bunch of shops and food stands at the base of the building. The observatory is included with the Osaka Amazing Pass. This is definitely one of the spots you want to visit if you do have the pass. This building provides a nice expansive view of Osaka. Unfortunately, the garden was being renovated when I went, but the views are still worth it.
  • Smaller than I expected but rooftop garden was also temporarily closed due to repairs. Nice cafe with beers and ice cream to relax your feet after a long day of walking. Bonus: unexpected small German Christmas market below the observatory free for you to walk around in Dec.
