It cost 500 yen and travels at a slow pace and gives a 360 degree view of Osaka. The windows were a little opaque but the view was lovely. Interesting to look at the tops of buildings and see how the locals utilize the space. We had a photo taken just before we got on and it was ready to... More

The Hep five wheel is in Kita, the northern city center, close to Umeda station. It is included in the Osaka amazing pass. Otherwise, I'd rather go for the bigger Tempozan wheel in Osaka Bay. Interesting 15 min ride.

I got this pass by using Osaka amazing pass. This place is easily access using subway and exit at Umeda station. We spent 20 minutes on ferry wheel. Their view are great. Panoramic view of Osaka.

Total ride on the wheel is about 15 min for $AUD20 for family of four, our 8 & 11 year olds loved it. Day view was perfect and blue skies of Osaka. Clear stickers of each landmark building was very handy to orientate ourselves. Air conditioned pods which make it very comfortable to be there a short time. Easy to... More

This morning my husband and I had a wonderful ride on this ferris wheel. We didn't have to line up at all and got a booth to ourselves. We were lucky that the weather was spectacular and we got a perfect view and were able to take photos easily. The view of Osaka is an impressive one from this ride.... More

My boyfriend and I hopped on to this ferries wheel not knowing what to expect. It was perched on top of the 7-storey high HEP Five Mall. And being mild acrophobia, we started to freak out and cursed our (or rather, my) hasty decision. The cabin could seat up to 4 pax but we had an entire cabin to ourselves... More

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!...
