This large ferris wheel is located within the Tempozan Park just adjacent to the Osaka Kaiyukan, hence very convenient for leisure seekers.

If you are visiting the aquarium or your cruise ship is stopping over, then you really should visit the Ferris wheel even if you have been to many other Ferris wheels. This is huge and difficult to miss. There are many good places to take pictures of the wheel to show how big and high it is.

Tempozan is very much like the Ferris wheels found in Yokohama and Tokyo. Riders are queued according to car preference (normal and see-through). A few cars are "see-through" but the floors aren't clear enough to be terrifying for people who fear heights. The best thing about the Tempozan is the city view. At near peak, the ride offers a striking... More

First of all, it comes together with the osaka amazing pass otherwise I wouldn't spend my 800yen just to ride a ferris wheel. The view is stunning from way up and among all these 'coaches' there are 4 which have almost transparent coach, so you can see the below from where you're standing. Since it's limited so you'll need to... More

Yup~ just get the Osaka Amazing Pass about 3k yen and you can avoid paying ridiculous price for a ride cost 800yen. The Pass is worth it as it cover other attractions, free of charge too! The Ferris Wheel take about 30mins a full rotate, just sit back relax & enjoy the view!

A thrilling ferris wheel which gives excellent views of Osaka, just 800Yen and right next to the aquarium. It takes around 15 minutes to go around, but the time goes by quickly. You can choose to go in a car with a see-through floor if you fancy the extra thrill and don't mind waiting a little longer to ride. You... More
