We've spent our spare times walked around Osaka while one of our friend watched summersonic 2014. Tried to find something interesting about the city, we found out that there's a catchy-red ferris wheel above the building. We'd followed the sign and very happy that they offer a ride with a very reasonable price! We decided to ride HEP 5 while... More

We went there after dinner. The view was magnificent. At the high point, we could see the trains coming in and out of the Osaka JR station. It was somewhat very "sci-fi". We took a lot of pictures and enjoyed the ride very much. It was worth the time and money. Great.

I don't know about the rest of the world, but I love myself a good Ferris Wheel ride! In total, the ride takes about 15 minutes to make a complete circle - some might think that it's slow & "boring" (as in previous post by others) but I loved taking in the entire sights of Osaka at a reasonable pace!...

This is one of three main attractions in Osaka which provide skyline views, the others being Umeda Sky Building and the Tempozan Ferris Wheel next to the Kaiyukan Aquarium. This was the most convenient, being located next to the JR Osaka train station. Tickets cost 500 yen each, which you buy from a machine. The ferris wheel trip takes about... More

Compared to the Giant wheel by the bay, this is located just 5 mins walk from main JR Osaka terminal. Great view of city if u are short on time and it's a wet day. If time permits, I would opt for the Giant wheel located at Tempozan. But if u are on Osaka Amazing Pass, both (and loads of... More

A lovely Ferris wheel ride, nice & slow & enables you to take in the city and get perspective & very reasonably priced. I did however feel a little funny as we moved out over the street! I wasn't expecting it as I'm not afraid of heights! Kids loved it.

Inside the cart, there are direction maps both sides of the seats telling you the attaction points. We could even have a glimpse of the Osaka Castle. Very nice to give the visitors a brief look at the famous area of Osaka city.
