Lovely 15-minute ride

I had been wanting to ride on a ferris wheel ever since I went to Japan in 2008, but got no one to ride it with. This time, the ferris wheel is located just a few minutes walk... read more

It goes very slow until your patience wears out, you are still up there! That's devastating when the weather is cold or windy. Not for normal tourist, maybe for young lovers who doesn't notice the time

We always hop on the wheel after walking around in Kaiyukan Aquarium. The wheel is very close by and if you are not specific about the transparent floor on the cart then the cue isn't long at all.

Not a must-see but if you are going to the aquarium and are keen on taking a ride, it's not a bad choice.

Another freebie with the Amazing Osaka Pass. We went during late afternoon on a weekday and there was no queue. A very relaxing 20 min ride; great view of the Osaka harbor. Recommended.

We went on the glass floor capsule. It was slightly frosted/less clear than we thought, which is probably good because it would have been terrifying for me since I'm afraid of heights, but we did expect more. The view was great and the surrounding area is fun to explore and very welcoming. However at the time we went, November 2016,... More

Enjoyed a ride at dusk after doing the Aquarium. Very high views of Osaka Bay and the amazing suspension bridge. Beautiful at dusk to see lights come on. We were planning to wait for a glass bottom carriage but decided it wouldn't offer much more and there was no wait for the normal carriage. Only 4 with glass bottoms. Actually... More
