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

The Ferris wheel only cost $5 per person which is pretty good value for the amazing view you get. Best of all is that each carriage has a stereo for you to plug your phone into and listen to music as you go around.

If you are shopping around the Umeda area, pop by at Hep Five Shopping Centre and the ferris wheel is situated right on top of the 7th floor of the shopping centre. The ticket is ¥500 per pax, but child below 5, pays a lower price. There is a photo area just before entering the ferris wheel and the staff... More

I thought at first Hep Five Ferris wheel is just a ride. Upon reaching the place, I was suprised it was situated on the 7thfloor of the Hepfive shopping centre. We where greeted 2 nice hepfive Japanese ladies to try the ride on the ferris wheel. On the 7thfloor you'll need to buy a ticket for ¥500 per pax and... More
