Osaka and Chicago are sister cities!

Hi, my friends from Osaka!

Your city looks beautiful!

THey should go much taller in Umeda.And build more behind Namba station,towards Den Den town

Re Osaka being twinned with Chicago.

In Namba Walk the city of Chicago has kindly donated about 30 high quality copies of the most famous paintings at the Chicago Museum of Art. A nice present, I see these high quality prints every day.

Great news about those 2 towers by the way. In the article I spotted another tower which would be 127 metres tall

This means Umeda will have close to the station....

KEPCO Headquarters [Nakanoshima 3-chome Pr..] 640 ft 41 2004

HERBIS Osaka [Nishi-Umeda Development..] 622 ft 40 1997

Umeda Sky Building [Shin-Umeda City] 568 ft 40 1993

Hankyu #1 190m/623ft (to structural top I think) and 186m/610ft to roof. 2007

Hankyu #2 127m/413ft

-----------------------------


To put Umeda really on the global map the city really needs to go big and original. It needs something that will really show Osaka off to the world. Twin or triple 1000 towers interlocking or something like that would be cool. Something original, which hasn't done before is key. They also need to be interlinked effectively with the station. I hope they come up with something great as this city deserves it!

Gate Tower is pretty ugly to be honest. The WTC Cosmotower is stunning.

Hi from Osaka, I'm actually a Brit but when you live in Osaka it really feels like home!

PS. Chicago is a lovely city, I went there for 3 days in August 2001 and absolutely loved it. The Windy City definitely has the best modern architecture in the world. The Chicago River, Wrigley Building, Marina City, Big John, CBOT/CME and Sears are all amazing! Venice of the 21st Century.

Osaka *g*
My next target.


Because i need a credit card to book a hotelroom i have to wait 2 weeks until my card arrives.

I will fly on the april 4th from Frankfurt via Dubai to Osaka. I spent 8 night in this exiting city. I want to visit Nara, Kyoto and Kobe.

I have some questions for the experts and locals. How is the weather in april in Osaka? Will i be abel to enjoy sakura?

I hope there are still enough seats in the plane and the hotel have some room left. I hate it to wait for a credit card >_<
