This place is on the way to the rinku factory outlet. Good view on clear days. The place is near the airport. Stop at rinku town train station to get there

A tall ferris wheels that you can see the beautiful skyline of Osaka. If you have Osaka Amazing Pass, you can get a ride for free. Another good way to spend time with your loved one. From the station, just take a 5 minute walk. It is easy to find.

Romantic and beautiful. My husband and I came an hour before closing (9PM) to avoid the crowd and after had taken advantage of the "Osaka Yu-yu Pass" which is an all day pass that includes admission to many places along with train fee. Good way to save money and travel all over Osaka!

With crystal train, and goes high with good view. Near Osaka kaiyukan. It's free if you have bought the Osaka amazing pass for 1 or 2 Day. Worth going.

You can choose a see through bottom or normal. We would have had a 20 minute wait so we chose the normal one.

This is huge and lights up beautifully at night, provides amazing views, if you are doing the Aquarium you can purchase a ticket for both attractions. Line for clear floor is always longer than not clear floor

The Tempozan wheel dominates the skyline, impossible to meet walking from the train station. Our day pass for the aquarium included discounted tickets for the Tempozan, so in we went. A little bit of a lineup for the ride, but when they asked if we wanted the transparent see through cabin we said no way! Then there was no line... More

The area is quite nice around the wheel and the attraction itself is reasonably priced and not overly crowded. It gives you a good vantage point to see across the city.

It is not crowd when i visit, 10 minutes wait if you choose the "see through" cabin, otherwise, you can choose the normal cabin. Nice view and clear explanation inside the cabin.
