Abeno Harukas, the tallest skyscraper in Japan (image bank)

At 300 meters high, the Harukas Abeno in Osaka is the tallest skyscraper in Japan.

The building is situated at the top of Abenobashi Station of Kintetsu Osaka and conveniently located across from JR Tennoji Station. It houses a department store, art museum, a hotel and observation deck.

The observation deck is called the Harukas 300 and occupies the upper three floors of the building from the 58th to the 60th.

Access to the deck is done by elevators from the 16th floor. With huge floor-to-ceiling glass panels, the 60th floor offers views of Osaka, while the 58th highlights an attractively designed inner courtyard with a wooden deck and café. A souvenir shop and bathrooms with views are also available.

Abeno Harukas Kintetsu is the largest department store in Japan. Covering more than 100,000 square meters of useful space, it is made up of two buildings, tower and wing. The tower boasts many international brand stores, has two floors dedicated to furniture, two floors underground, as well as three floors of restaurants. The interior is aesthetically designed, combining art and functionality.

In the ward there are stores promoted under the Solaha brand that target the young clientele. There is also a floor for sports and travel products, as well as a children’s bookstore. Both buildings are connected by short walkways or escalators on certain floors.

The Abeno Harukas Art Museum is on the 16th floor near the elevators leading to the observation deck. The museum does not have a permanent collection and changes exhibits of Western and Buddhist arts every few months.

A garden terrace on the same floor offers a green space to sit and relax. With free access to all, the terrace also offers views of one side of the building (from central Osaka), but the views are not as naturally dominant as those on the 60th floor.

A square on the roof is in the building wing of department store Abeno Harukas Kintetsu. With access from the 10th floor of the main tower, the square has a small vegetable garden and a small sanctuary.
