....probably you will admire it from Umeda area during the day or at night, without aiming at having a ride...although once at home, you might regret it, as myself, so I would suggest not to avoid it. However, at night time is most impressive

As a connoisseur of ferris wheels, this was a decent ride. Not so high that you feel the wind rocking the wheel, but high enough that you get a great view. The windows are well maintained and have a small diagram of the buildings and features around with labels. It was raining when we rode and that was great. The... More

It's exactly what it sounds like - a ferris wheel with a nice view of Osaka and bay. Pleasant view, very romantic!

visited there on 5Aug2014, after finishing Kaiyukan which is smae area. To be another attraction activity around Tempozan area ( Kaiyukan, marketplace and Ferris wheel) 800Yen/person, with longer que for see through cabin. The wheel take 15 min/round. View is like staying in other tall buildings in this area. Once is enough.

Having been on a few of these around the world this must be one of the biggest. Small cars really only for two people but still very good view on the way around. You can see a long way and all around the river

The location was little far from the center of the city and not very straightforward to get to (some walking involved). Even though the base structure and the arcade seem bit old-fashioned, the view from the ferris wheel at dusk was pretty good. But nothing breathtaking..

We used the Osaka Amazing Pass for this place on Friday. There was not that much people on that day so we didn't wait for it. The view on the top is quite amazing! We did enjoy on it a lot!
