This is a really good activity to do after you have gone to Kaiyukan and if you have the Kaiyukan pass. You can get a 100yen discount with it making your entrance fee only 700yen! I highly recommend this if you want a fun and exhilarating view of Osaka and Kobe. The ride is approximately 17 minutes and if I... More

Compared to australias docklands Ferris wheel which costs $35 a go the cost of this wheel at $8 is exceptionally good value. Actually it worked out at $35A for our family of 5 because we had an Osako hakyu aquarium card which included the trains from kyoto and entry to the aquarium. The card gives 100Y off each ticket.

It is probably the biggest ferris wheel in Japan. The 15 minutes ride provided a complete view of Osaka. The ride was steady and safe. The tempozan market, adjacent to ferris wheel, have many restaurant for dining.

I hVen't ride it but it looks the same woth other ferris wheel. I think if you'd ride this, maybe you'll see the view of the whole Tempozan Harbor Village. The ferris wheel though is as usual very good in photos!

First time we sat in a Ferris wheel on top of a building but this is logical since Japan is so land scarce. Like: Had a great view of the glittery centre of Osaka on this winter evening. Not much queue so we got in really fast. Dislike : not easy to reach as the signage were rather messy

Great view of the city and bay from the wheel. Ride take approximately 15mins with two cabins (normal and full transparent glass). Needless to say the wait for glass version is longer as there are only 4 cabins out of the 60. Located next to the Osaka Aquarium gives plenty of options. Lots of local food at mall at base... More

Riding this giant tempozan ferris wheel will give you a clear view of the Osaka bay area. You might feel some mild shaking during winds.... moves very slowly. the rides took about 10 mins. Pretty interesting.

Tempozan gives you a great view of Osaka city and the whole lit up business area but it is scary being there. They take your picture before you got on the ferris wheel and if you like it you can but it from the reception. Only problem is that it costs liken 15 bucks. Anyways, they might have cheaper prices... More

Went for a ride on the ferris wheel after we went to the aquarium. Overall, the ride was just okay. I took the glass cabin which lets you see the ground, and since there were only a few glass cabin, we had to wait for around, 3-5 minutes (since there's no queue) and it was nice. You can see USJ...
