We did this at night - lovely excursion! So cheap, maybe only about $10 pp. Then had dinner at one of the many restaurants on the street nearby. There were also lots of shops & food court nearby, so worth a trip.

This wheel is like any other wheel. What you pay for is to see the different views of the city from high up. Went for the regular over the clear because it was a longer wait. The compartment came with a speaker sound system so that was really fun. I plugged my phone in to play a nice song for... More

Think I came here at the right time, was just hitting dusk and sun was setting, there was no queue so managed to get straight on. It's well worth it if you have the Osaka Amazing Pass as it is free when you use that so saves you 600 Yen.

beautiful view... scary at first but once you get used to it, the view is breathtaking. at night the view gets colorful with thousands of lights underneath you.

Tempozan Ferris Wheel looked imposing at Osaka Harbour but the view from the capsules was far from spectacular, being mostly of a working commercial port. However as it was one of the sights that my friends and I visited using the Osaka Amazing one-day pass, it was a nice way to pass some time

A very nice view from up there! I suggest to do it in the evening because you get a better view of the overall landscape in Osaka and you also see many buildings light up. It takes around 10 minutes to do 1 ride and if you avoid the weekend (evenings) you can ride it without any queue.

Cool experience. One of the largest wheels in the world. At 800 yen a person, it is worth the ride. The view is great in the ride is slow enough to take it in.

Tempozan Ferris Wheel is the larger Osaka ferris wheel by the aquarium (Hep Five is the smaller ferris wheel). You can choose an all glass car, but the wait time is longer than the regular cars. We rode it during the day and saw the view of the bay and surrounding area. At night the wheel is lit up with... More

Once we finished up at the Osaka Aquarium we went across to Tempozan Ferris Wheel. It was a nice ride with good views of the bay. Only downside was that it was a cold, foggy day so it was spoiled a little by the weather. I definitely recommend on going on a nice day and recommend doing the aquarium and... More
