What a location; It was steps from the cruise terminal. After we went to the Aquarium took a ride on the ferris wheel. It reminded me of the wheel in London but on a smaller scale. Great views of the port area, aquarium and shopping...More

Don't take this if you have a fear of heights! It's simply MASSIVE! Gives a great view of the Osaka Bay area. Pay attention to the stickers on the glass in the gondola, it states what each sight is. A worthwhile 15-20 minutes if you...More

Lovely views of Osaka skyline, specially at sunset. A must do while in Osaka. There are other attractions also nearby so a tourist needs at 5-6 hours to cover all. Tip: The queue is normally long at sunset so reach 40-50 minutes in advance.

From the Osakako train station, you'll be able to see Tempozan's huge, nearly imposing structure. Of course, all of this 'structure' is made for it to be safe and secure. It's a few blocks away, which gives you a look at some of the restaurants...More

You get great views! A little scary when you reach the top as it swings a tiny bit! Enjoyed this more than expected I think it was around 1,500 yen. Good fun and it has amazing air con for a hot July!!

Looked at this giant wheel for a few days before taking a trip at night. The views were crazy from the top. I think this is maybe the biggest Ferris wheel ever, certainly seemed like an age for it to do one whole turn ....More

We took this after visiting the Aquarium. If buying the wheel ticket with an Aquarium ticket you will save 100 yen... We had short queues, waited about 5 minutes for a normal car but was 15 minutes for a glass bottom car. Ride takes approximately...More

Pick the right time and you will be able to capture the amazing sunset. Never mind the transparent flooring as you can't really tell them apart from standard cabin.

Capsules give great views across the bay & Osaka. Take the full view capsule (if you dont mind looking down) as better all around views.

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.
