Quite a landmark - you can see the from such a distance - and as expected you can see forever from the top. I am scared of heights and so probably not as enjoyable for me as it was for my husband. The staff are lovely!

Fun and a great way to get an aerial view of Osaka's water skyline. You can choose the normal gondola or the see through gondola for no cost... If you're brave! I have a height phobia yet the normal one was scary. Best way to get tickets is ¥3000 for both aquarium and Ferris wheel. Go during sunset at 7pm... More

Ferris wheels aren't usually my thing, but I simply cannot resist going on this super tall one especially because I had the Osaka Amazing Pass for free admission! Even without the free admission though, I still recommend this cool Ferris wheel that gives you an awesome view of the Osaka Bay and the city skyline. If you are daring (and... More

Its sort of corny but its also a fun way to see Osaka from a different perspective. You are on for a once around ride as its a slow moving observation wheel. Its on the top floor a shopping center so the view is pretty good. I don't think I would pay for it but since entrance was free with... More

This is a giant Ferris wheel, located by the seaside. Ticket is 8US$ (there's a combination ticket with the nearby Aquarium, as well) and the ride itself takes apx. 15 minutes. The view from the Ferris wheel is nice, yet not spectacular - you can mostly see the bridges of the area, and of course, the sea. We took the... More

This is near the Osaka Aquarium, so it is a convenient side trip. The admission is 800yen, but 700yen if you have the Aquarium-train ticket combos. It has good view of the Osaka bay, and is a nice and inexpensive attraction.

Ticket per entry was 800 JPY. You can choose to ride in a wholly see thru gondola or one where the floor is covered. My son and I chose the latter, because we belong to the faint hearted!. The ride was about 30-40 mins, very slow moving. when the wind blows, you can feel the gondola swinging a bit slightly.... More

The Tempozan Ferris Wheel was at one time the tallest in the world. While it no longer is, it is also probably one of the tallest ferris wheels most people will get a chance to ride. It is right next to the Osaka Aquarium so it is definitely worth a stop if you are visiting there. The cost of admission... More
