Arriving at the bottom of the tower, the question was where was the entrance? We took the main entrance by chance and went up to the 39th floor. There was no one down there. Around 5 p.m., it was still light but night was beginning to fall. On the 39th floor, there are tables for eating. Drinks and food are sold there. On the 40th floor, there is a platform. Many are gathered to try to capture the last ray of sunshine. It is also possible to buy 1 padlock on the 39th floor and hang it in a dedicated place on the roof. This is 1 mini-reproduction of the Pont des Arts in Paris (Lovers Bridge). To get down to the GROUND FLOOR of the tower, we took the path we should have taken on the way out. But what a mistake! You must first take a first escalator surrounded by a glass wall (great!) And a 5-minute wait for the glass elevator (reasonable) But on the GROUND FLOOR, the shock! There was a queue worthy of a concert evening to go to the top. Mind-blowing! Entrance to avoid!

I loved it, very nice experience! We entered around 8 pm and there weren't that many people! All of Osaka looked spectacular!

Top! I highly recommend this experience. The construction and architecture is very unique compared to other skyscrapers.

Breathtaking ride with elevator and escalators The reflective floor on the observation deck is also very cool.

Excellent view to 4he city. Don't go after 20:30, you will have to rush...
