Went to the Osaka Aquarium KAIYUKAN and bought the combo ticket (Aquarium+Ferris Wheel). Not the best Ferris Wheel I've been on but it's a great add on to the Aquarium after the long walks and since you're there you might as well do it. If you have time wait (about 20-30 minutes) for clear units as it gives you more... More

Great fun and all. However, the transparent cabin floor is not exactly clear to see through. It's not dirty, but maybe due to the material eaily get blurred or the glass floor simply showing its age.

We opted for the transparent cabin and it was worth the 20 min wait (there are only four of them). My wife was a bit worried but it was not scary at all. The view is excellent so you don't even worry about the height. The great thing was that they did not force the cabins to be full so... More

....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

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.

This is just next to the aquarium and you can get a free ride if you have a Osaka Amazing pass which is only 3,000 yen for 2 days unlimited rides on the subway and free entrance to many Osaka attractions. Have a good view of the Port of Osaka from this ferris wheel which is the biggest in the... More

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
