The Tempozan Harbor Village is lucky to be located next to the Aquarium. Not sure it would get a many visitors if they weren't in the area for the Aquarium. The Tempozan Wheel allows for a great view of the harbor area and Osaka. There is an audio that plays during the ride. There are also pictures of landmarks on... More

Somewhere near the Southwest of the city, lie several small islands, one of them containing the Tempozan Harbour Village, or as some call it the Tempozan Bay Area. Here you can find several attractions together, the Kaiyukan (Osaka Aquarium), the Tempozan Ferris Wheel, the Santa Maria cruise ship and the Tempozan Market Place. I lumped them all together because this... More

Easily spend a day walking the sights centred here. Kaiyukan, Osaka Aquarium is next door. The Ferries Wheel is just at the other side. There's Legoland inside the Mall. Have a meal at the food court at ground level. Besides the many restaurants inside, pick out interesting eats at the popular Naniwa Food Alley featuring traditional dishes of Osaka. For... More

This seaside area of Osaka offers a Ferris wheel, a small mall, an aquarium and an art gallery. Crowds tend to gather here in the late afternoon, but personally, we found the entire place a tad boring and not really worth the commute from downtown Osaka.

Located near Universal City is this place. You can roam around here and do several things such as ride the ferris wheel, have some food trip, shop (though not so much) and tour the very big aquarium.

There's much better shopping elsewhere in Osaka. We only went in here as we were leaving the aquarium and looking for a place to eat. We went to one sushi place in here and the fish looked so not-fresh that we actually got up to leave before ordering. The food court isn't any better. I ordered Okonomiyaki at one counter... More

Inside Tempozan Village mall is a petting zoo. They have a large group of dogs, yes dogs in a zoo. The dogs are diseased, many elderly and several who have signs of stroke. They seem malnurshied and generally depressed. While visiting the kangaroos a member of my party was kicked in the face and scratched, left bleeding. There is little... More

Nothing much, just a regular food court with some souvenir shop. I went inside because the wind outside is so cold.

Stuck inbetween the Ferris Wheel and the Aquarium you will naturally find yourself here at sometime. It has a good food court, and there is a little maze of very popular Japanese style eateries. The shopping is not good and aimed mainly at the tourist (local and international) who is visiting one of the big attractions. Not worth going here... More
