Osaka From Above

Shin Umeda City's Floating Garden Observatory

By Connie Ng    - 1 min read

Shin Umeda City is one of the very first sights to welcome you at Osaka Station upon arrival. From afar the cartoon-like exterior is reminiscent of a futuristic LEGO set from the 80’s. Its rigid geometric shapes and lines strikes a bold presence against the Osaka skyline. On the very top level is an outdoor floating garden observatory where the two skyscrapers are connected. At 173 metres above ground, you can really feel the wind!
