Amazing building - would recommend any visitor to Osaka to see this structure. I got a discount voucher from my hotel as well so see if your hotel has one. Definitely worth the ¥650 to wander around the top observatory and take in 360° views of the city. The escalators in mid-air will impress especially when you get back down to ground level and look back up to the heights you have reached. Easy to get to from Osaka Station. Really impressive buildings!!
I expected a walking tour to most of Osaka's attractions but we walked mostly going to the subway and out,, the stations being located quite a distance from the attraction itself and we started late. Anyway, from our meeting place in Granvia Hotel Osaka, we walked to the nearby Umeda Sky building after which we went back to Granvia Hotel for lunch. After lunch, we took the subway to Temmabashi Station where we walked towards
the main tower of the Osaka Castle. We went up to the 5th floor(the elevator is only for going up) and you have to go down on foot as you browse through the museum but since we were given only a few min, there wasn't enough time to see everything. From there, we walked towards the pier located a good distance at the back of the castle for the river cruise. It was the nicest part of the tour which lasted almost an hour. Then we went back to our respective hotels by subway again.
