There are bridges and an escalator crossing the roof. The uppermost floor features a doughnut shaped dome that also houses the breathtaking Floating Garden Observatory, which offers guests a unique view of the surrounding city-scape.

Great views of Osaka. Elevator and escalator ride to the outdoor observation deck is quick.

Looking for the best view of Osaka? This is your spot! 170 meters and 40 floors. Don't worry, there is an elevator and it's FREE - I love those words. Definitely go for the view, day or night.

It’s interesting to ride to the top to see the sunset. But there’s nothing else to do. Spent about 30 mins here

I like the design and architecture of this unique building. You can get the best views of Osaka from the top of this building.

I'm not normally into viewing decks but this is a cool building, the viewing deck looks like it has stars scattered across the floor. Very special, and they even have a little fortune shaker (like those in shrines) at the top floor. I came here when they had a beer festival going on at the bottom of the building, very atmospheric. Good fun!

The Umeda Sky Building towers above the rest of the Osaka skyline. The building's unique design is fun for visitors to admire both inside and out. Buy tickets inside to head to the floating garden or observation deck. Just make sure the weather is okay because they do shut down the observation deck if there are heavy winds or lightening as it's outside.

The Sky building is an amazing structure that has fascinating design elements beyond your average skyscraper building. You can ride up the interconnecting passages between the main buildings, and get a great view of the surrounding Umeda, Shin-Umeda and great Down Town Osaka area. There are shops and restaurants below the complex, with a waterfall and a small replica of old Tokyo, with narrow walkways and further shops.

Architecturally interesting with a "mid air" garden that is open to visitors. Most of what is interesting about the building is best observed from a distance. This is probably Osaka's most famous modern landmark.

Nice viewing spot, and very cool escalator (glass bottom, between the two towers) and lift (glass side). There's also a piano that plays itself.

There's a bar on the roof with all-you-can-drink hours for a fee. Also, great views.

Local from Osaka, Japan

地下にレストラン街、屋上に空中庭園を持つ、世界的に有名な梅田スカイビル。隣にはウエスティンホテルがあり、周囲には里山をイメージしたような、小川が流れる大きな庭が広がります。
観光客向けではなく、建築としてのスカイビルを見学させてもらったことがあるのですが、真ん中にあるブリッジ、あれ、片方は固定されていないらしいのです。地震の揺れで片方がスライドして折れないようになっているらしいのです。そんなことを聞かされてあの橋を通ったもんだから、本当に怖かったです。
屋上の空中庭園からは大阪の街だけではなく大阪平野が一望。観光客なら行く価値ありです。
12月にはビルの下でクリスマスマーケットが開催され、大きなクリスマスツリーも立ち、華やかな雰囲気になります。
