The viewing deck is located on the rooftop of one of the city's tallest buildings, a 173 m (567 feet) tall high-rise.

Kuchu Teien Observatory reviews
This place provided great Observation Desk. I would suggest to come during night because the view is really nice. more »
It’s definitely a great place to go if you want some good views of Osaka. Definitely worth the price of admission. Going during the day is great, but go in the evening for dope night views! more »
It is quite romantic here. The ¥1500 cost is rather forbidding but if you want some pretty memories with your significant other this is definitely the place to go to in Osaka. The walk from Umeda Station isn’t exactly pleasant but I would say that it’s worth it. When I visited in 2020, the place was all decorated in St. Valentine’s Day celebrations, which is a big thing in the Far East.
Fantastic view of the city, also worth it to visit it around sunset (although many others will have the same idea and it can be crowded). The lounge/bar is not that special and lacks atmosphere. A nice cocktail-bar with comfortable lounge chairs would be a great addition to stay longer in this place and enjoy the view with a nice drink. Beware though, there is no eating/drinking allowed on the outside deck!
