Tempozan ferris wheel is one of the highest in the world. you can see the sights of osaka outstanding from above. if you have amazing osaka pass, you can ride for free. you can settle for taking pictures while aboard. The larger and higher than the singapore flyer

We included a pass to the ferris wheel with our aquarium visit, which made it cheaper by a few hundred yen. Not unlike most things in Japan, there was a 20 minute wait, but they get people on & off the wheel very quickly without having to stop. We went around 7:30, and was great to see all the lights...

This is you typical Ferris wheel. It is Great at night when the city is lit up. Reasonable price to ride, and the ride is quite long.

Great views are offered from this amazing ferris wheel. It is not necessary to wait for the glass-bottom cars, as the others give pretty much the same view. (The glass bottom is covered in plastic so you can`t really see through it anyway). This was one of my top tourist experiences in Osaka and I highly recommend it. It is... More

I am not sure how good the view would be during the day but we went at night and it was quite pretty. Takes about 15 minutes to go around, I wouldn't make a special trip but certainly something to consider doing if you are in the area.

Aerial view of Osaka Bay surrounds. Wheel lights up at night with a colorful display of patterns and pictures. However, if you've already enjoyed viewing from the commanding heights of London Eye or the Singapore Flyer, this might pale in comparison. Fees are decent at 800 yen per pax for a 17-min ride.

Just boring... no queue so its nice to visit after the aquarium. For me, I'd rather save that 20min ride and explore some other places.... unless you'd like an aerial view of that area. Go for it. I went shopping instead but thats just me.

Bird's eye view of the harbour and Osaka in the distance. The small mall attached to the ferris wheel has old style shops, eating places -- a very nice place to spend a few hours after your visit to the Aquarium, which is right across this attraction.

This is the best Ferris Wheel we've ever been on! The views are amazing, but the highlight is seeing it from afar at night! The Ferris Wheel lights up at night and the lights form animations! It is a trip to see! Must do this if you're ever in Osaka. Also, the Osaka Aquarium right next to the Tempozan Ferris... More

We look for Ferris wheels wherever we go, it helps us to get the best views. This wheel in Osaka is very nice with some nice views. Why it was built in this area surprised us, as the view is mainly of the port area. It is located in the middle of a shopping mall so shopping is very easy... More
