Good value for money, slightly terrifying if you're even a little scared of heights. Not much else to add!

Go after sunset for a beautiful view of Osaka at night! Bring your phone/mp3 player, there are audio plugins in the pods to play your favourite songs. It can be very romantic!

It may seem to be a scary ride , but once you get inside the gondola and the you feel the almost non existent feel of movement , you will just relax and enjoy the views of the Umeda skyline and a good vantage view of Osaka City Station. I just wish they could clean up the glass windows to... More

My wife and I took the Hep Five Ferris Wheel at a weekday night after our dinner. It was rainy that day and the night view would have been even better.

It wasn't too expensive, $5/ person for about a 15 minute ride. You get a good view of Osaka and the ferries wheel is located in a shopping mall so it's close to food.

This ferris wheel is the highlight of HEP5 which is a mid size shopping centre. Lots of local teenagers and young at heart. Only my kids went up the ferris wheel and they enjoyed themselves.

This was a great way to see the lights and the city by dusk or evening. It was a must do for the trip. Easy to get to and there was a very small line for us when we went. the views are stunning.
