About Koji Kinutani Tenku Art Museum
Koji Kinutani Tenku Art Museum is located on the 27th floor of the Umeda Sky Building, a skyscraper overlooking Osaka Bay, and opened on December 23, 2016.
The Umeda Sky Building, completed in March 1993, is a 40-story, two-building complex of office and commercial facilities with an innovative design. The museum was opened by Sekisui House, Ltd. as an art museum named after Koji Kinutani, a leading Japanese painter of alfresco paintings who is active on the world stage, with the aim of creating a society through the promotion of art and culture.
Mr. Koji Kinutani not only engages in creative activities, but also participates in the “Japan Brand Promotion Project” sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as a global activity, and in the “Koji Kinutani Award” for young painters as an educational activity, as well as the “Children’s Dream Art Academy” sponsored by the Agency for Cultural Affairs. Sekisui House, Ltd. sympathizes with Mr. Koji Kinutani’s wide-ranging activities and philosophy, and supports art and culture at this museum.

We went there with the Osaka Round Trip Pass. The first 3D made me feel as if I was inside the painting. I would like to visit again to see this 3D.
Located on the 27th floor of the Sky Building West, there were only a few people in the building, so we were able to enjoy the view at our leisure. The view from the elevator hall was also excellent!
