Osaka Station Sky Farm and Japanese Garden

Ever wanted to visit a Japanese garden and do a bit of farming at the top of a skyscraper above a huge train station? Ok, maybe not, but I’m sure you can admit the idea of Tenku No Noen (Sky Farm) and Yawaragi no Niwa (Healing Garden) are pretty cool. They offer good views over the city, and the benches and tables make for a nice place to have a few drinks in the evening (bring them from the convenience store to save some money!).

Up for a bit of farming city boy? Tenku No Noen (Sky Farm)
