You could choose an ordinary gondola or a see-through one which has see-through seats and the bottom but has a longer wait. Beautiful views of Osaka bay, its large number of bridges including Universal studios. We felt that we spent adequate time in air. We used Osaka Amazing Pass for this. Excellent value for money and can be combined with... More

We loved every ferris wheel we did in Japan. Slow and steady. Giving you time to take great photos. This one was no exception. Well worth the $8AUD.

We had some time to kill before the cruise and this attraction is at the pier. It was interesting and offered delightful views of the area. We had a cabin to ourselves and it had a glass floor for that extra thrill. Worth the money.

We took the crystal cabin (20 minute wait) on a clear day and it was gorgeous. Probably not worth admission on a cloudy day though. We got a 100¥ discount by purchasing this attraction along with the Osaka Aquarium entrance.

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
