sky building lovers


In Osaka, the Sky Building stands out more than any other building, mainly because it's BLOODY MASSIVE.

People living in the city are divided on the construction - some call it "an exciting and modern take on Paris's Arc de Triomphe". Others, however, prefer to call it "a block of scrote", which doesn't sound very nice at all.

The bloody massive Sky Building.

If never-to-be-king Prince Charles ever visited Osaka, he might well liken the Sky Building to "a monstrous carbuncle on the face of a much-loved geisha."

As with any big building, escalators are a popular and efficient method of transport, moving people about without them having to expend any energy...


At the top of the building you can walk around outside. But be careful not to do anything out of the ordinary as there is a small security man also on the roof, keeping an eye on things...


A curious fixture on the top of the Sky Building is the Lumi Deck. According to the information given, it seems to be a place for lovers to sit, like at a bus stop....

Seats for lovers of uncomfortable looking seating.

If you're interested in securing your heart lock at the fence of vows, then consider a visit to the top of Osaka's Sky Building.

I love it, but, at the same time, I'm really, really glad that it's not in my city.

I guess my heart lock will remain insecure, though. That's kind of sad.

It looks a bit like if they had forgotten to build the middle part. Or like if they had ran out of money and built it that way so at least they could make the roof and say that was the original project. The tiny security man is scary. I bet he's lethal and that's why they don't need any bigger :o[

So if the Lumi Deck is reserved for lovers, it means I can't take my wife up there.

And what if I want a twosome of loving on my own? Would the installed "Fence of Vows" still secure my Heart Locks all around the Lumi deck? Would the Lumi deck still surround me while the lights and stars come on to me?

Yes! How can I reserve a time to secure my heart? Where do I sign up?

Umeda Sky building was my favorite building in Japan....

I'm surprised they allow love making on the roof of that building. I thought Japanese were more reserved. But I guess not since they allow public sex on the skydeck.

A few years ago, Prime Minister Mori was given some Basic English conversation training before he visits Washington and meets president Bill Clinton...

The instructor told Mori Prime Minister, when you shake hand with President Clinton, please say 'how r u'. Then Mr. Clinton should say, 'I am fine, and you?' Now, you should say 'me too'. Afterwards we, translators, will do the work for you.'

It looks quite simple, but the truth is...

When Mori met Clinton , he mistakenly said 'who r u?' (Instead of 'How r u?'.)

Mr. Clinton was a bit shocked but still managed to react with humor:
'Well, I'm Hillary's husband, ha-ha...'

Then Mori replied 'me too, ha-ha.. .'.

I might be wrong, but it seems like Japan has many exclusive spots for lover's, or special activities to find true love

Nice. I plan on a trip to Osaka to photograph this building (and the expressway building) among others :)

Cool building but I bet an eyesore to local citizens. It's always like that. I think the architect was inpired by LEGO blocks.

Of all the sly tricks they can pull to increase the birth rate, this has got to be one of the less effective ones.

A brief spell working in this building and the first few hours where totally disconcerting as it tangibly wobbled about. Something to do with earthquake protection I think. On the upside... the business I was working for had breathtaking ikebana at the reception desk on each floor.
