  • I seen this Ferris wheel from a mile away and knew I had to take a ride on it. Never seen such a massive structure mounted on top of a building and what a sight it is. For 500 yen it was worth it, the...  more »

  • This is probably the largest ferris wheel I have ever been on. I've always loved views of cities from up high so I thought this would be a very cool experience to see Osaka from above. You start by going to the 8th floor of a shopping mall, purchasing a ticket from a machine and lining up. Our lineup was only about 10 minutes long g as we went at a non-peak time, roughly 4:00pm. In the carriages they have a portable speaker which you can attach to your phone using an aux cable which is a nice touch. The visibility out of the carriage isn't the greatest as it is fairly dirty and there are safety stickers on every single window which get in the way. Maybe the night time view is a lot better but during the day everything looks so bland and boring from above. You can see pretty far but there is nothing really interesting to see in the area. At least it was only 500 yen per person which is a pretty decent value for the 15 or 20 minute ride.
  • Pretty cool to see a Ferris wheel within a department store on the sixth floor. About 500 yen for a ride which is reasonable.
  • it provides the views of the downtown Osaka while taking a ferries wheel. It takes approximately 15min with the cost at JPY500.
  • The view at night was quite nice, and gave a unique perspective on the city
  • Amazing place.
