Osaka travel pass gets free ride

I bought one day Osaka pass which provided free entrance for abt 25 places including this Ferri Wheel. Try to choose the all transparent deck (only 4), it is amazing!

If you are visiting the Osaka Aquarium the ferris wheel is basically on your way and worth riding. Do not bother and wait for an all transparent cabin since the normal ones offer enough glass to have a good view.

We took a glass cubicle which was transparent like a 360* view, the ferris wheel was a total waste of money. We could hardly see anything, reason was rain. Not sure how it would be otherwise.

Having been on many ferris wheels in Japan (Odaiba, Yokohama, Tokyo), I thought it was great that this one was far bigger and only ¥800. Most of them are a few hundred yen more. Worth it!

We went around 9pm so we didn't have to wait in line at all. It was great to enjoy the lights and views of Osaka at night.

Right next to the Osaka Aquarium and easy to access with JR Rail. Makes for a great opportunity to just sit back, relax and take in the beautiful views of the city.

I went to osakako just for the wheel and it was totally worth it. It took around 15 mins and the views were quite amazing. Also, i had the Osaka amazing pass, so the ticket was basically free of charge.

In keeping with my questionably wise tradition of finding tall places in tectonically unstable countries I jumped at the chance to take a ride and reconsider my own sanity. Once the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world, Tempozan will have you filled with regret quicker than your decision to drink tequila. This attraction is free with the Osaka Amazing Pass... More
