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

We bought the combo aquarium and ferris wheel ticket for JPY3000 (Adults). Good place to rest and enjoy the view after walking the aquarium.

We bought the Osaka kaiyu ticket priced 2.550¥ which includes entrance ticket to the Osaka aquarium, unlimited subway rides, and 100 yen discount for the ferris wheel (best deal!) . We went there during night so the view is amazing!!! Definitely prefer this giant ferris wheel than any pbservation towers. It also completed with a guide through the speaker which... More

If you visit the aquarium it's next to it. But I wouldn't travel there just to take the Ferris wheel. It's about 15 minutes. You can pay a little more to take the car with transparent bottom. You can see the bay, bridges, aquarium and port from top. Otherwise I think it's slow and boring for JPY800

I went here with my boyfriend thinking it would be cool to see the views and such but really nothing is out here but the aquarium. It's cool if you went to the aquarium then did this ferris wheel but to come out here just for this was a waste. The ferris wheel at HEP5 in Umeda is much better.

This is a good spot for the night view of Osaka as you can see from up top. There is English introduction inside the cart for seeing points. It is easily accessible by subway and it is a 10 minute walk away from the closest exit. The mall below the wheel can satisfy one's hunger. There is a Legoland inside... More

This is a good attraction to go to on a clear day together with the aquarium. They do sell tickets together for a cheaper price or you can ask your hotel whether they have combo deals that includes the Osaka Castle and other attractions. A good view of the city and surroundings can be had with narrated broadcast in English... More
