  • For a cheap ticket this is just for fun to ride the Ferris wheel. About 17 minutes around seems to be a very short ride. A nice view of Osaka city & Osaka port. It might better to ride it at evening.  more »
  • Oberammergau on a wheel there is not much to say, great for relaxing a little with his considerable height you can enjoy a great view ...

  • At the waterfront, if you have a week ticket advice to ride, after sitting, to the top is really high, the speed of the Ferris wheel can be seen above the wind scene, the night is not wrong. A ferris wheel can be used to set sail in the Holy Mary.

  • The ferris wheel is one of the biggest in the world and offers a great view over Osaka and the bay. There are two kind of cabins, ones with glass bottom and regular ones, to queue for. Normally you are very quick for the regular cabins, for the glass bottom ones it can take up between 30 minutes to an hour on normal days. You can combine it with the aquarium, as they also offer combined tickets for both.
  • This is my first ferries wheel ride. 15-minute tour. A great view of the city and it was a fun ride. i love it.
  • Great way to end a night in Osaka. I think it's better at night because you can see the city lights. The lights on the ferris wheel also has decorative patterns at night. There are transparent and coloured cars. They're both for the same cost (800 yen I believe) but there are fewer transparent cars so there might be a queue for it.
  • A 15 minute ride that you can buy alongside and entrance to the aquarium next door. Situated to the side of a mall that offers food and shopping options. The ticket price in total was 3000yen and although a little rainy on the day we still managed to see the whole city. My wife enjoyed it very much. I dont recommend people with height issues to go though as it is pretty high up!
  • This is my first time getting on the big ferris wheel. The visitors are freely to choose the transparant floor or the other one. If you aren't coming with a group you can have the cabin for yourself. The best part of the atraction is you can have an Osaka Bay 360 degrees view from the top of the wheel.
