Floating Garden - Review

The Umeda Sky Building is a 173 metre spectacular high rise building situated in Osaka. The structure of the building consists of two main towers which are connected with each other by the Floating Garden Observatory on the 39th floor. From the garden, one gets amazing views of the city. Many locals take pride in this man made marvel. A must visit while on your tour of Osaka.

Floating Garden, Osaka Reviews

  • A little out of the way for subway or train but the walk there from umeda station was pretty cool. There is an admission charge (i think it was 10$) , well worth it in my opinion. There are directions and signs in the area telling you how to get up, very easy to figure out. There's an indoor observation floor with seats by the window as well as an outside observatory at the top. The view is truly breathtaking. It can be pretty hard to open your eyes fully outside even on overcast days so sunglasses highly recommended. The angle from indoor floor is actually better for photos, as the fences on the outdoor observatory can ruin photos. The glass is super clear and wont affect photo quality imo.

  • It was fantastic. You can see the most beautiful skyline in Osaka. I suggest you reach earlier than 6 pm if you want to have a seat in window side. And it was not easy to find the way to go up. The elevator which can reach observatory is located in 3rd floor.

  • Wonderful experience to see the city from the outdoor observation deck on a good day. The views are fantastic! Indoor observation deck is just as beautiful and relaxing during the day. Much less of a crowd than many other observation decks, and during the day it'll be quite empty. Also includes seating areas with nice views. Great place for a date or couple as well.

  • Very nice view and fun place to kill around one hour time. The cost is 1500 yen but I git a 2 days pass at the airport for multi sites entry plus 2 days unlimited train for 3000 yen. Pass is available at airport information desk. Must have if you are first time visiting

  • Can get pretty crowded with tourists and costs a bit of money to get to the top, but it's worth it for a nice, quiet evening with a date! The sofas on the lower landing are great to lounge in, if you can get one.
