Umeda Sky Building
My tourist efforts continue, today with Umeda Sky Building: an impressive business tower with rentable meeting rooms and offices, and the iconic "Floating Garden Observatory".
The legitimate use of this building results in a somewhat amusing mix of lost tourists and groups of business men in suits mingling about the grounds. I can't imagine having to work or meet here and having to circumnavigate the hoardes of slow, inappropriately-dressed American tourists.
While not as moving as my first trip to a shrine, I will never say no to a chance to be up high. The view, while partially obscured by clouds and/or smog, was magnificent.
