On the East, you can see the Abeno Harukas which is the tallest building in Japan, and the Tennoji Zoo beneath the tower.

The fifth floor where the observation deck is located is glamorously decorated with red carpet and golden flooring and walls.
The Billiken Statue which is believed to bring good fortune will welcome you as soon as you enter the floor.
It is believed to invite good fortune if you scratch his sole, and there are even some people who come to the tower to see him.
