The wheel is situated right at the port and is certainly better to see at night as it lights up beautifully. The views from it, however, in either day or night are great. The ride lasted about 20 minutes and wasnt too expensive.

Arrived by cruise ship and found the Giant Ferris Wheel right at the port. Cost was 800 yen and the ride was 20 minutes. Avoided the long line with the glass bottom car and got right on the ride. Great view of the city.

Just go for the normal carriage will do as the see through carriages' floors are not exactly see through due to worn out. And you have to wait much longer to get in.

This is a very large Ferris Wheel and was quiet when we visited - there was a short queue for the glass-bottomed gondolas, but we walked straight on to one of the others. Great views from the top and a steady 15 minute ride.

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....More

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...More

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...More

We didn't have any issues with our 4-year old son. However for an infant I'm not really sure but I think it should be fine.
