We are not great fans of such attractions, because most of them involve waiting in line for at-least double the amount of time that you spend on the wheel. However, as this ride came free with the Osaka Amazing Pass and we were in the Umeda area, we decided to check it out. It's on the 7th floor of the... More

This place is located on top of the HEP mall and was it worth going on this ride? Why yes, yes it was. My sister and I were actually just walking around the mall and spontaneously just rode the ferris wheel. BEST DECISION EVER. It was exciting just to take pictures, enjoy the scenery, be able to play songs from... More

My sis & I did this and the view was breathtaking at night (also the height helped a little). It was a little scary. But definitely worth a try! We didn't have to wait very long. The line was fast. So you wouldn't be spending too much time there.

I had bad luck in getting the cabin with a scratched plexiglass which made my photos somewhat bad. Ride lasts for almost too long time, it was night and after a while it was boring. Nevertheless, well spent money. Maybe the better solution would be some tall building near by.

Just spend a thousand yen to get on the remarkable Hev Five Ferris Wheel, then be happy to enjoy a great view of Osaka town lighting at night. Awesome !

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience of riding this ferris wheel on top of a department store. I was scared but the whole experience was worth it. The views of this part of Osaka were stunning.
