Although the heart and soul of the city lies in its many historical places, much of Osaka’s personality and most recognisable features lie in its modernity. There are famous high-rise buildings that offer incredible views over the city, such as Abeno Harukasu, the Umeda Sky Building, and the Osaka Prefectural Government Sakishima Building. If you’re a fan of architecture, there are several famous buildings to track down while you’re there as well. These include the "organic building" designed by Gaetano Pesce, “Church of Light” by Tadao Ando, “Louis Vuitton Osaka Hilton Plaza” by Kumiko Inui, and “namBa HIPS” by Shin Takamatsu. It’s a remarkable modern city, and these iconic buildings are often the best way to appreciate its present and future.
