Umeda Sky Building

Towering over Osaka at a height of over 170 meters, Umeda Sky Building is one of the city’s most prominent landmarks.

Completed in 1993, the structure, consisting of two connected 40-story towers, is a key feature of the Umeda district of Kita-ku, Osaka.

Enjoy both local and international cuisine from a selection of 20 restaurants at the Takimi-Koji gourmet street on the underground level which will take you back to the Osaka of the early 1920s.

Relax and take in the breathtaking view of the city at the Floating Garden Observatory on the top two floors and the Sky Walk on the rooftop. With an unobstructed 360-degree view, you can leisurely enjoy Osaka’s widespread cityscape.

Why not take a break and have a drink or dessert at the Sky 40 Café while continuing to enjoy the view from the windows? Or sit down for a romantic evening dinner and absorb the spectacular nighttime scenery from the bar Sky Lounge Stardust or Chinese restaurant Sangu.

Gourmet dining, dazzling scenery, and an exhilarating experience all await you at the Umeda Sky Building!
