This ferris wheel has great views, lasts a good 15mins and is pretty reasonably priced. Each pod has a speaker with cable to plug ur smartphone in to play your own music.

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.

Is just like Tempozan Ferris Wheel in Osakako station (near Kaiyuken Aquarium) but different view. My friend found there is speaker at the back of seat and can just plug-in to play songs along the ride. Making it more enjoyable. Anyway is free entrance with present Osaka Amazing Pass :D

Having ridden different ferris wheels at different locations, including the Tempozan ferris wheel, this one was very unique and fun, even though this one's smaller. Located on top of a building, surrounded by more buildings, lighted in bright red, it was quite exciting rolling along the office buildings. I could even see inside of the some of offices working late.... More

This is a very slow moving ferris wheel with wonderful views of the city. At 500yen per person, it's quite reasonable. And you can plug your phone/iPod in to listen to your own music in the gondolas. Nice.

We didn't need to pay extra for the ride as it's included in the Osaka Amazing Pass, which costs 3000 yen for 2 days and grants you free access to many scenic spots in the city. The capsules are air-conditioned and equipped with speakers, allowing you to plug in your music player. When the capsule rotates upwards, you can enjoy... More
