It's not in Osaka, Brian, but Kyoto.

Well let's try Gaunn-kyo bridge at the Toufuku-ji temple?

Like Tofukuji the location we're looking for is also in the Higashiyama quarter of the city.
Only this location is a bit more to the north.
An excellent guess.

A hint: there is about 7 km. between Tofukuji and our location.
Almost in the middle lies the famous Kyomizu Dera.

Frankly, Dirk, I don't have time to try to locate this - there are so many temples/shrines in a place that I have never been to that although I have found what seems to be a photo of the same building./bridge, it appears that its not. I give up.

Is it the Hashidono (Tahei-kaku) bridge in one of the gardens of the Heian Jingu Shrine in Kyoto, a cypress-shingled wooden structure formerly on the grounds of the Kyoto Imperial Palace?

It seems to be in a shopping mall in a northern location.

It is not a shopping mall but a six story galleria that has been called a "crystal cathedral of commerce". Tenants in the 49 and 53 story office towers linked by the galleria include: Barrick Gold. Boston Consulting Group, Bloomberg LP, Brookfield Asset Mgmt, CIBC Wood Gundy, Cisco Systems, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and Morgan Stanley.

I hate to say it, but the clue possibly made it too easy!
So is it the Allen Lambert Galleria designed by Calatrava? Toronto?

Brian, you are correct. The office complex in which the Galleria is located is called Brookfield Place and the two office towers are the 49-story Bay Wellington Tower and the 53-story TD Canada Trust Tower.

Now over to you.

Thanks, I"l look something out and post probably in the morning.

Somehow Calatrava's architecture is very recognisable.

So what and where?

I just realised that I should say that hemisphere does not necessarily imply a north/south division. In this case more an west/east one.
