  • Ferris wheel attached to Osaka Station close to the shopping center of Umeda. Breathtaking view from above, especially after dark. Highly recommended

  • 買大阪的周遊券可免費坐,非常抵! 在商場上的 可以看夜景,挺浪漫的。 最好是他不會迫你跟陌生人擠在同一車廂! 但畏高的就要考慮看看! 
  • That big red stands out from a distance. Located on the HEP, always crowded with young people and the not recommended for elderly people. However, Umeda metropolis is spread from one's feet and looks, so couple dating, etc. really good is.

  • HEP FIVE is a large shopping mall next to Hanky Umeda station. It mostly features women's clothing on the lower 5 floors with a few men's clothing stores as well. It's most famous for the giant Ferris Wheel on the 6th floor, which I've never actually been on so I can't speak to it, but I'm told it's a great place to go on a date. It also has a large restaurant are and a game center with all kinds of games and "purikura" available. Not a bad place to spend your time if you're a girl, or on a date with a girl. A single man? Not a lot to do.
  • A moderately sized Ferris Wheel which gives birdeye's view of the shopping district of Umeda. The entry fee is included in the Amazing 1 Day/ 2 Day pass that can be purchased from most Osaka rail stations.
  • The mall has many unique clothing shoes catered to females, on the top floor you will find a Starbucks and the entrance to the ferris wheel.
  • Used the Osaka Amazing Pass for a free ride here in the evening! Fabulous ride and sights of Osaka's night lights! Beautiful!
  • The ferris wheel is really fun! It is very red and gives a fantastic view of the city.
