Tsutenkaku is a tower situated in Shinsekai, Osaka. The tower was first built in the year 1912 as a replica of the Eiffel Tower.  However, in the year 1943, the tower suffered a fire and was damaged beyond immediate repair.  And so it stayed for many years. After World War II, The Tsutenkaku Kanko Co. Ltd. was put in charge of rebuilding the tower. The new tower was opened for public in the year 1956 and is 103 meters high and the main observatory deck is 91 meters high! Apart from the observation deck, the tower also houses Tsutenkaku Wakuwaku Land, Shops, Jan Jan Town Kinnikuman Museum, Diorama Display, Cafe de Luna Park and Glico-ya.

  • 700¥ for observation deck (good for looking not suited for photos) additional 500¥ for platform (only open until 17:30) Also features a pocky museum. Great view.

  • The Tsutenkaku Observatory is a very good place to see all around the Tennoji area. If you are in Tennoji, it is a place you have to see. : D

  • There are 2 stories of the building that you can explore. 5th is the highest one, 4th has the telescope which you can use for 5 mins for 100 yen

  • Just passing by while take a walk from Shitennoji Temple. Fine place to catch the picture of Japan typical urban architecture.

  • Eye-popping assault on the senses, in a good way. Fantastic panorama of neon and bling.
