Highway in the 5th floor

This is one of my favorite buildings in Osaka:

Autopista elevada

I had taken many pictures of this building but I never thought of approaching to it. Anenglishmaninosaka did it, and he took this building directory picture:

Autopista elevada
It says “Highway from the 5th until the 7th floor”. I wonder if there is something else in the building…

I wonder if inside it looks like this.

seriously, that is just awesome. Japanese cities seriously look futuristic. How do they come up with this stuff? Like in the West, when you think of constructing a building and its located near a highway, you go, we have to build somewhere else. The Japanese say, why don’t we build around it?

I’ve been through this building a few time. ^o^ It is actually an off ramp of the Hanshin Expressway right by the rail station in Umeda. Sorry to say there is nothing on the 5 ~ 7 floors, but I’m sure everyone knows. ^^
Can’t find any of my street level photos of the building. For those who haven’t been to Osaka. The build is near Yodobashi camera, Umeda Sky Building and JR Osaka Station.
