Tsutenkaku通天閣

Observation Tower

A viewing tower located in Naniwa Ward, Osaka City and a famous Osaka landmark. Originally erected in 1912 and modeled after the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the current 108 meter tower is actually the second Tsutenkaku. The fourth and fifth floors are a viewing floor overlooking Osaka. There are figures of the Seven Gods of Fortune on the fifth floor as well as a statue of Billiken which is said to bring good luck when the soles of its feet are rubbed. The tower is filled with other interesting things to see and do, including the Kinnikuman Museum; a café produced by Mother Farm; and showroom shops by Morinaga, Glico, and Nisshin.

Review of Tsutenkaku

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/11/16 Awful. Don’t go.
As a resident of Osaka this used to be lovely place to visit many years ago, but now it’s just a hollow Poki shop with a decent view ruined by awful inside lighting. Will never return. Don’t visit.
Reviewed:2018/11/15 Good nice walk
You will never be bored to walk around in day and night. You will see full of people at all time. You can find all the food and all the shopping need.
Reviewed:2018/11/10 Symbolic tower of Osaka
It is a symbol of Osaka.
There are lots of A Japanese dish of skewered meat shop in the surrounding area.
Lighting up at night is very beautiful.
Please come and visit Osaka by all...

          While Osaka prefecture is the country's second smallest prefecture, its capital, Osaka City, is the country's third-largest and arguably one of the most popular in the Kansai region thanks to its vibrant nightlife, the Osaka people's openness, and its much-loved cuisine, which has earned it the nickname “the nation's kitchen."
