Opened in March 2014, Abeno Harks is the highest skyscraper in Japan.“Harukas 300”, an observatory which occupies the three top floors, stands 300 meters high.
Harukas 300 is a” roof-top style” observatory in which the 1st floor does not have a roof. The 2nd to the 3rd floor is an indoor observatory with a unique construction with no similarities seen around the world.
The first floor is a stylish observatory with foliage plant on the wooden decks. With low indoor lighting, it is a perfect atmosphere to enjoy the night view. On clear days, you can see from Mount Ikoma to the Akashi Kaikyō Bridge, and this may be considered to be one of the greatest night view spots in Japan.
There is a garden on the 16th floor of Abeno Harukas. This view is no comparison to the view from the observatory, but the free view from here is as high as the Tsutenkaku, and well-known landmark of Osaka. The garden closes at 7 PM, so you cannot see the night view during warm seasons when the sun sets late.
Because I visited the place for coverage before opening time, I was able to take photos without anyone in it.
