ABENO HARUKAS building has just opened on March 7th, 2014. It's the tallest building in Japan with a height of 300 meters, exceeding even the Yokohama Landmark Tower by 4 meters. The Abeno and the Ten-noji area is the commercial center and transportation hub of Southern Osaka. Abeno Harukas has an observatory deck on the 59th and 60th floor, "Tenku Teien" or Sky Garden on the 58th floor and an observatory restaurant on the 57th floor. The Osaka Marriott Miyako Hotel is on the 19th, the 20th floor, and also from the 38th to the 55th floor. Offices are on the 21st to the 37th floor. There's a museum on the 16th floor and the Kintetsu Department Store covers everything from the 14th floor down to the B2 level. In particular, the 360 degree panoramic view of Osaka city from the top floor is a picturesque night scene because there aren't any high buildings around the ABENO HARUKAS. Inside the Kintetsu Department Store you will find many luxury brand boutiques, shops and restaurants. I'm sure you'll enjoy shopping and eating there. There are also many restaurants at Q's mall, Mio, or Tennoji Station Building, which are buildings around the ABENO HARUKAS. Why don't you enjoy the magnificent view of Osaka from Osaka's newest skyscraper?

Peace of Mind

This was our first international trip and the language barrier was giving me the most concern. Having Koichi there to meet us at the airport and help us navigate the public transportation (we took the monorail then train) to travel to our hotel, was beyond helpful. On top of having someone there to help us (I saw many other people looking very lost), Koichi had a welcoming smile and demeanor that made us feel immediately welcomed and at ease. We knew immediately we were in good hands!
