At 800 yen to get in, this Ferris wheel offers good value for money. Comparing prices here to back home (Auckland) I've found most activities in Japan to be very reasonably priced in general. I'm not a huge fan of heights and found this wheel far scarier than I was expecting and it was a good way of seeing Osaka... More

I'm afraid of heights, yet chose the all acrylic cabin. This has all clear acrylic including seating & bottom, which I didn't realized when deciding. Long story short, had the most beautiful 360 degrees view of the city & ocean while clinging (very hard) to my husband the whole time!

The Tempozan Ferris wheel was good value at around 800 Yen (700Y if you buy a daily metro pass and ask for the discount). It took approx. 20mins and offered great views of Osaka and the harbour.

A pleasant ferris wheel ride. You can see far and wide, and even USJ! Gives a fantastic view of the Osaka skyline and the beautiful mountains in the distance. Go for the Kaiyukan Aquarium and then the Tempozan as they offer a combination ticket at a mere 3000yen. Good value!

There are a couple of large ferris wheels in Osaka. This one is in the Tempozan area and is nice and at a nice price. However there isn't much scenery to be seen from it. If you are in the area then is is a fun thing to do if you have the time but I don't think I would... More

As soon as I spotted this I knew I had to have a go. There was no queue so I went in a clear gondala. I got on as the sun was setting and by the time I got off it was almost dark. Amazing views and a great experience!

Slow and quiet attraction. Not a lot of action there, just sit down, take your time, relax and take photos. A pleasant moment,but not essential to visit Osaka

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
