It’s the seventh tallest building in new UMEDA city, Kitaku, Osaka city
It consists of 40floors above ground, 2floors underground and is 173meters high.
It’s a landmark of Osaka, and a tourist spot, because of its unique and special kind of conspicuous configuration.
It was selected as one of the TOP 20 BUILDINGS AROUND THE WORLD by THE TIMES, a British magazine.
It’s a first-class architecture in the same class as Angkor Wat in Canbodia, Taj Mahal in India, Parthenon in Greece and Sagrada Família in Spain.
It’s a paid attraction, but you can see across the Osaka city and a spectacular view from the observation deck at upper most section, the “air garden”.
The observation deck is placed on its roof. It is very rare to have such a deck on the roof of a super-high building, and it has wide open space where you can feel the whole sky, wind, and enjoy a 360-degree view.
It’s a very popular spot for dating in addition to being a tourist spot.
