Umeda Sky Building

The Umeda Sky Building is a great place to go in Osaka if you want to get a high-up view out over the city ^^

The building has a really interesting design that looks like something out of a sci-fi movie >.>
It looks like 2 skyscrapers that have been joined together at the top.

To get to the rooftop observatory you take a lift up to the 39th floor, and then an escalator which spans across the hole in the middle of the section joining the 2 skyscrapers to the 40th floor, and from there take some steps to the roof……it’s a really odd feeling to be on an escalator bridge around 170m from the ground with nothing below you :P

We were lucky when we got up to the top, because we were just in time to see the sun set over the city :D

From the observation deck you can see for miles around over Osaka, and look down on the neighbouring buildings ^^

Then when it gets fully dark and the city lights up, you get a whole new view to enjoy….I’d highly recommend going up there if you have the chance ;)
