Get a view of Osaka from the bay area. Close to the santa maria cruise and kaiyukan aquarium. Choose the transparent cart if you want to see through the floor. It took 15 minutes to finish a cycle.

We visited Tempozan Ferris Wheel along with the Kaiyukan Aquarium because they were close to each other. It was a clear day so we got see real far away when we were at the top. You can also see 360 degrees. Price was reasonable. You should bring a camera with you to capture the views.

This was complementary with the Osaka Amazing Pass. I doubt i would have taken this if not for the Pass. They only had a handfull of cabin which had transparent flooring. It would be good to take that cabin but they had seperate queues for such cabins. I didn't want to wait an hour for that so my family and... More

Was here at cherry blossom season and the view of the trees in the nearby park was great from the top. The Ferris wheel has glass compartments only 4 cabins. So if you want the extra special sense of space then wait to board those cabins. A great experience and view of Osaka.

This Ferries Wheel was formerly known as the worlds tallest, biggest and most technologically advanced observation wheel of its time but now surpassed by many others. It has nice panaromic view of the city of Osaka, the seascape and the amazing structures of Osaka. It is about a 15 minutes ride on this wheel and the instruction inside each car... More

It's just a Ferris Wheel. I dont know what i expected, but it definetly wasn't worth the money. You can get a decent view of Osaka on the top, but the whole trip lasts for only about 15 and maybe 5 of them will give you a nice view. Even in combination with the Aquarium you'll only save 100¥ and... More

We went here in the evening and this a much bigger one that HEP Five Ferris Wheel. We initially wanted to be up there during the sunset but we got there a bit late. You have the option whether to take a glass gondola or a normal one. There's a long queue for the glass one so we opted for... More
