|Yarawagi-no-niwa Plaza (Healing Garden), Umeda, Osaka|
The taller North Gate Building has three roof garden spaces. The Yarawagi-no-niwa Plaza (Healing Garden) on the 10th floor includes a central water feature and gardens and is the most frequented.

Tenku-no-noen is a small urban farm on the roof of the North Gate Building on the 14th Floor and is accessed by stairs from the 11th as part of an exercise course.
Tenku-no-noen is open 7am-9pm. One visiting friend mocked it as just a "few cabbages on the roof" and to be sure the over-riding impression of a visit to OSC is one of concrete and glass rather than flowers and grass.

Kyoto Station pioneered the roof garden concept with its "Happy Terrace".
