Amazing view on top

For an exhilarating view of Osaka city, get to the top of the ferris wheel right before sunset. It's a view to remember.

Good views around but not as spectacular as the 60 floor view from observation deck "Harukas 300 at Abeno Harukas. Got pretty much straight on despite being generally busy around - only a queue for see thru cabins. Good for visit combined with aquarium nearby with food and animal petting in shopping centre between the two.

The views you get from this place are outstanding. Be sure to go on a clear day though. A bit pricey for what it is, but nonetheless, a fun memorable thing to do.

by far, the biggest and the highest Ferris wheel my family and I had ever rode. You get to see the amazing view near the bay area.

Going up the wheel gives you a nice Harbour view of the entire port/bay area of Osaka. Recommended if you have time and near it.

the wheel turning slow, then you can picture the sight view of Osaka from the height. Near the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, cost 30 min to enjoy the big wheel is a good rest after see animal .

We sat in the see-through gondola...had to queue 45mins to an hour for it as there were only 4-5 cars that were completely see-through. It was an interesting experience but not as thrilling as we thought it would be as the thick safety glass did not quite have the scary effect. Plus side: I think the kids will still be... More

Very nice view from the top of Tempozan Ferris Wheel located next to Osaka Aquarium. Unfortunately we visited in the rain so the view wasn't fantastic, but it would be great on a clear day!

Beautiful waterfront views from the ferris wheel. The lineup was long but went quickly. It was very high up which didn't bother me, but for people afraid of heights it will. Worth it (my partner is afraid of heights but enjoyed herself). You get to see all the bridges and how they connect all the islands. The ocean is beautiful... More
