It is located at the top of the shopping mall. Takes around 10 to 15 mins and you could connect your mobile to listen some music XD Kind of scary somehow due to the altitude.

Surprisingly, no queue in the drizzling evening. There's a built in speaker in each gondola which you can plug in your phone via the cable and enjoy your music! Could be sucha romantic ride overlooking the night view of Umeda.

We had seen this on a previous trip to Osaka, but on this occasion we thought we would explore this supposed entertainment park. But really it is just another shopping centre and nothing special either.

My friends took me here upon my visit to Japan! It was a great way to see the city from a new angle! The view was amazing as we went at sunset! I would recommend going, especially at sunset, as it was really fun!

This Ferris wheel is located in the Hep Five mall. And this mall, from my observation, is frequent by local youngsters (tweens or below 20s), and there’s no real reason for a tourist to visit this mall. The Ferris wheel ride, although uniquely located at...More

you have to go to 7th floor of HEPFIVE store to get to the entrance of the Ferris Wheel. The view up there is nice Osaka city view with the magnificent Osaka train station nearby and jungle of concrete buildings.

Right in the heart of Osaka City. Near Osaka Eki and Hankyu Eki. A high Red Ferris wheel with fantastic views. We went late one evening and had no lines. The total ride was 15 mins. A recommendation for sure!
