Good view of the city from the top. The wheel takes about 20 minutes per loop. We got a transparent seat which had a lineup to wait through since only 4 out of the 60 pods are like that. I think the view would be the same from a normal seat so if there's a lineup just take a regular... More

Got in with Osaka Amazing Pass (free). It's not hard to find...just look up you'll find it because it's tall :). Got to choose between the normal capsule or the one see through. Went for the normal one because didn't want to wait for 30mins because not because there's a Long queue. The "special" capsule very limited. It's a really... More

There are two ferris wheels in Osaka, this one is a little off of the beaten path. It is on the harbor down by the aquarium. Both ferris wheels offer good views of different parts of the city. If you have the Osaka Amazing Pass, you can it for free as well as the ferris wheel in Namba. Here's a... More

Nice to view the aquarium/port area from 112 meters. Ok price and you can get a combined ticket for the wheel and the aquarium which let's you bypass the ticket line to the aquarium (saved a lot of time for us). The wheel is good, you can choose between transparent car and regular. The only thing we didn't like is... More

The views at evening were very nice though rain in the windows obscured it a bit. There are transparent carriages but the wait was an extra 30 minutes. Note the curious petting zoo in the shopping centre when you exit.

We originally planned to drop by during daytime but ended up visiting it during evening after spending hours in the Aquarium besides it. Turned out we made a wise decision, the ferris wheel spun slowly allowing us time to take in the bird's eye view of the Tempozan area with a gorgeous sunset too!

Got Ferris Wheel & Aquarium combo ticket to save 100 Yen at the entrance to the Ferris Wheel. Went on it on a clear morning around the time it opened. There are only four glass bottom gondolas so if you don't want to wait for one it's best to go early. We had no wait for the glass gondola. 17-minute... More

This ferris wheel is best visited on a clear day, where you will enjoy some really nice views of the Osaka port area. If you have the "Amazing Osaka" 1 or 2 day pass, admission is free.

For ¥800 (general admission), you will be taken on a 17-minute-long ride on a gondola (8 people max) up to about 112 metres off the ground, and will be given the chance to see a good view of the city from above. It is especially pretty at night, so it is recommended to ride when the sky gets dark and... More
