We didn't realise it was above the shopping centre/mall and wandered around looking for a ferris wheel initially. We couldn't see/find it as the downtown area is so densely populated with buildings. We enjoyed the ride once we finally found it. It was not too long but not short enough that we couldn't see and experience the view in full.... More

Provides one of the best night views in Osaka, taking in Umeda and more distant areas. Osaka Castle can be glimpsed in the distance. Makes a pleasant post-meal diversion after an evening in the city.

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
