The Umeda Sky Building is the seventh-tallest building in Osaka City, Japan. This 173m (568 feet) building was designed by Hiroshi Hara and was constructed by Takenaka Corporation and was completed in 1993. It consists of two 40-story towers that connect at their two uppermost stories, with bridges and an escalator crossing the wide atrium-like space in the center. The escalator can make you feel like you are floating up into the sky. It is the cheap way to see Osaka City, less than USD10 to go up the observation area.
