There is s shopping complex and aquarium within the vicinity. Ample rest area with benches in case need to take a breather from visiting the aquarium, shopping and taking the Ferris wheel. There is halal restaurant in the complex itself. From the nearest subway - walking is quite a distance though.

Every time I visit Osaka, I always include a trip to Tempozan and it's iconic Ferris Wheel. Why? Because it's a rare opportunity to be at such a high altitude and being able to take pictures of Osaka in any weather and any season. Where else in the world would you be able to do this? not convinced? enjoy an... More

This is worth the trip to the aquarium. It is inside the same complex and the views are great. It goes nice and slow so you can get some great shots

After going to the Aquarium which too is a romantic place. When leaving the aquarium it was dark and decided to take a ride on the ferris wheel. it was very en-joyful and romantic. It lasts about 20mins and has great views of the docks and city. Shame I was alone :(

I think the location very far from downtown that made this place unattractive. This place is not local hang out place and i believe location is the main factor. A bit pricey but if price is not your concern then head onward to this area that located osaka port, kaiyukan aquarium and shopping mall.

It was fun and worth to take the transparent one! I went there ina cloudy day buy I really enjoyed to see the ocean, city, and the sky. The mall next to it also has some fun if you have kids.

Sitting at the mouth of the Osaka Bay is the enormous Tempozan Giant Ferris Wheel, formerly the biggest, tallest and most technologically advanced observation wheel in the world (now surpassed by the even more massive British Airways London Eye). From high up in the air you can enjoy a panoramic view of the sea, the mountains, and the entire city... More

The shopping is not bad. You can go to small zoo for petting some animals. There are a lot of different food served.
