  • Every time you come to Osaka, the hoping of the scene. This time, it's finally on the platform, and it takes a lot of steps to walk with the kids. When we cross the bridge and walk out of the pedestrian the underpass holds Osaka weekly 2nd coupons on the electric ladder to the top all the hard work is worth it. And the night is so beautiful

  • Umeda Aerial Park Vision Station is a unique, night in the air circle to look at the skyline of Osaka at the same time the lights are very beautiful, when the night is colder than stay too long. Autumn is the best time to watch.

  • This place offers one of the best views of Osaka I could find. Unfortunately it is not very easily accessible with public transport, but it is well worth the little walk from the nearest station. Being just next to the main city area means you get the best view of the city. Getting up there is a challenge if you are afraid of heights as I am, but again it's well worth it.
  • On the way up to the sky terrace via the elevator hanging in the air, was a very thrilling experience . As we could see the surrounding around us via the glass panels, while traveling in the elevator. Cool.
  • You can see wonderful nightview of Osaka. At winter it could be cold. As i know, you can not bring food.
  • I love this place! Good place for spend time rest there, have a drink while seeing the good view of osaka after a long day trip.
  • It's extremely cold, wear a few layers. Great place for couples; they sell love lockets for you to leave your love and memories behind.

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
