We never went on the ferris wheel but went up and dine on one of the levels that led to the ferris wheel entrance. We only had a short time in Osaka so we had to for go the ferris wheel ride in order to make it to other attractions. I'm sure the view would have been amazing, the atmosphere... More

On the top of the hall it would be amazed by the view at night. Due to the special coupon it is free to take the ferris wheel to see the whole city clearly. You can also walk on the path for view seeing.

The wait for the elevator to get to the top floor (where the Ferris Wheel is) took forever. Hint - Go down to a lower level to take the elevator up. You'll be in line forever otherwise. Its ok. Not sure its worth the money, but if you have the Osaka Pass, which I did, then its included

The line up was a bit long which took over 90 mins as or was a busy day. Maybe all days are busy. Once going though the view was awesome despite the rainy weather. I can only imagine what it would be like on a clear day. Conveniently placed on top of shopping centre which only highloighted the view and... More

We saw this from the train station and walked over. As it was ¥500 each we thought we would give it a go. 15 mins duration and it wasn't crowded so no queue. It was a nice view although the view is blocked at some points by taller buildings. I expect this would be much better at night unfortunately we... More

Decided last minute to do this and was totally worth it, particularly at night, the view is spectacular!! You can also plug your own music into one of the music ports in the cabin and listen to that as you go around. Located at the top of a shopping mall. Queued for a bit, but Japanese queues move quite quickly... More

I used to be a skeptic about the various "Eyes" and "Flyers" that have popped up in various urban centers around the world. Riding the Hep Five Ferris Wheel thoroughly changed my perspective. Being lifted hundreds of feet above street level with a panoramic view of the skyline is a truly breath-taking experience. Bonus points for the illustrated guide on... More

great visit to the ferris wheel on first night in Osaka. You can plug your phone into the speakers in the cabin and have your music pumping. Good value, ride takes about 20mins

Really enjoyed the views from the Ferris Wheel. At only ¥500 it was a good deal, and there was basically no wait. If you are in the neighborhood, it's a fun thing to do.

Hep Five Ferris Wheel is located on the 7th floor of Hep five building. The ferris wheel is not large but got a high view from the mall. The wheel is not that good compare to Tempozan ferris wheel.
