Osaka tower unveils open-air observation deck that blows visitors away

posted on December 29, 2015

Osaka's iconic Tsutenkaku tower has opened a new open-air observation deck that offers visitors breezy, sweeping views of the city, which might even be the perfect place to pop the question.

Although the 634-meter Tokyo Skytree boasts an enclosed observation deck as high as 450 meters, Tsutenkaku tower's Tenbo Paradise deck features a glass floor and a wire fence with a 1.3 meter-high transparent glass wall to enable visitors to feel the wind.

The 40-square-meter deck is open between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., with the last group of visitors admitted at 5:30 p.m.

Entry requires a special ticket priced at 500 yen ($4) in addition to the 700 yen entrance fee to the indoor observation deck located 7 meters below the Tenbo Paradise deck. A ticket is valid for a 30-minute visit.
