Abeno Harukas & Harukas 300 – Osaka | Travel Information

Our Rating
Abeno Harukas

The Abeno Harukas towers 300m into the sky, making it the tallest building in Japan (Not including towers). The Building serves many purposes, which include – but not limited to – shopping, accommodation,  cultural experiences, professional work, sightseeing, and even functions as a train station.

The total cost for this building exceeded over 75,000,000,000 JPY (Close to $700,000,000 USD). That includes the many different expansions and additions which have been done since construction started in 1988.

This monstrosity is hard to miss in the Osaka skyline. You can even see it clearly from Kyoto if you climb the mountain at Fushimi Inari Taisha. It’s really hard to miss when driving around on the highway, or even anywhere around Osaka for that matter. 

The top section is called the Harukas 300, is an observation deck located at the top of the tower, which gives you a remarkable view of Osaka! Surprisingly, it’s not a very popular tourist destination, which means that you can enjoy a nice peaceful experience here. 

If you are also looking to grab a bite to eat, they have a cafe on the 58th floor which sells some great food, and you can eat it with the best view of the Osaka metropolitan area.

The Abeno Harukas is one of the easiest to get to destinations in Osaka, given that there is literally a train station inside the building. There is also a train station right outside which is connected along the Osaka Loop line, so getting to the Abeno Harukas is a walk in the park.

So the hotel inside of the Abeno Harukas building is called the Osaka Marriott Miyako Hotel, and is a 5 star hotel offering stunning views of the city.
