I did something similar in Aukland, on the Sky Tower (Skywalk) and then did a sort of "controlled bungy" jump off of it. That was fantastic. I'll give this tour a go the next time I'm in Osaka.

¥1000 for twenty meters. Sounds reasonable, but no safely helmets? Hope nobody drops their keitai...

The best view of Osaka is in the rear-view mirror.

Height restrictions of a minimum 146 cm and maximum 199 cm

Im really disappointed. My wife is only 141cm so she cannot visit! Maybe I make her wear super high heels to go up! Or better yet -- find another girl to take up lol!!

Why?

No bungee jump option??

Remember sneaking up the Sears (Willis) Tower in an external orange elevator before the building was opened, and messing around on the roof until we got caught. Better view than Osaka, I reckon.

I am sure they paid a lot of money to some advertising agency to get that "Edge the Harukasu".

What a lovely view of parking lots and grey buildings.

In a single word, "jumper!"

I know I'm not getting any younger but the prices of some things sure turn me into a grumpy old man.

2500 yen just to go up a building! Some people must be made of money.

Not exactly a breathtaking view is it?

what could possibly go wrong?

As a former hang-glider I want to jump! With the right wings, of course. That aside, not much of a view, as some of you said, and that 2500-yen cost, just to go up a rather short 'skyscraper' and take a three-minute walk outside is simply ludicrous. But, from what I've seen of costs for many so-called tourist attractions in Japan, it's par for the course.

Oh hell naw!!!

rear view mirror haha LOL!!

Sounds like they don't let you take loose items out there & you are shackled to a rail to prevent anyone from testing their flight skills......

Heights make me regurgitate. Would not want me up there on a windy day.

would really suck to be up there and have an earthquake hit...

Osaka is not in any way a picturesque city, much better sampled at ground level. This is a bizarre thing to do.

Wish to have that on Sky Tree
