It is the waterfront area. There is the ferris wheel, boardwalk and a small park here. We came here in December, so it was cold and there was minimal outdoor activities. It was really quiet and we felt isolated.

This area is probably best avoided on Japanese public holidays with long queues for most activities. We visited the aquarium but the other attractions we wanted to see just had insane queues. Probably would have been better to come on another day.

Another tourist area, so expect higher prices. There is a food court where prices are more reasonable. You see the usual shopping malls, restaurants, entertainment etc. Accessible using the Osaka metro.

Unless you plan to visit the aquarium or love ferris wheels, Tempozan Harbour Village will disappoint. It was probably a good concept but it appears that the economic downturn undermined their best laid plans. It is relatively quiet with little to see or do. If...More
