Nice view of Osaka

There are 2 choices for the ferriswheel car, one that has a glass floor, the other not. Good thing my daughter put some sense into me and said the glass floor will be too scary... read more

For wonderful views of the Osaka waterfront you can't beat the tempozan Ferris wheel. Located next to Legoland and the aquarium it's a great attraction for children and adults alike. The trip is a leisurely pace (not to fast) so you can enjoy the sights. Look out for Universal Studios over the water.

There are 2 choices for the ferriswheel car, one that has a glass floor, the other not. Good thing my daughter put some sense into me and said the glass floor will be too scary. Cause I already had the creeps when we were on top. But the view is so nice. Ideal to go to after the aquarium.

This ferris wheel is located next to the aquarium so we decided to ride it around lunchtime after vising the aquarium. Normal cost is 1000 yen but, if you have one of the transport passes including the Osaka Kaiyukan one, cost is 900 yen. There was quite a long queue for the see-through gondolas but virtually no queue at all... More

Nice relaxing day around Tempozan Ferris wheel and surrounds. Nice gardens too to see the Cherry Blossoms, although a little late this year still nice to see some tress with great blossom. Would recommend going later in the day to see the sunset.

We took the ferris wheel when it was dark and really appreciated the spectacular night views over the city of Osaka. We found the ferris wheel ride to be a fun experience. Be aware though that the ride does not last very long.

Since I was traveling solo for the day, I was happy to find out I could ride the ferris wheel alone, and it was such a freeing experience. The wait was about 35 minutes, and the ride itself was about 15. I found the timing I chose very nice, right around sunset. Overall I enjoyed this experience so much, and... More

I took my daughter to the aquarium which is right by the ferris wheel and she said that she wanted to have a go. It was a wait of 30 minutes for a cabin with a transparent bottom so we avoided the queue and got straight on another one. The ride took 15 minutes and you get a decent view... More

Complimentary facility with OSAKA Amazing Pass. Enjoy it with family and friends. No need to exchange the tickets at the counter with the Pass.

Did this early and it was great. A good view of the surrounds and helps you get your bearings. Well worth it.
