  • Osaka Umeda station is located nearby. Hankyu Entertainment Park is named after the initials of the Ferris wheel, the time to enjoy it the best night view of Osaka, about 15 minutes.

  • The scenery is good than you think ... Not even waiting for. .. It is possible to pass gas ... Also very convenient for the Metro and you're connected.

  • This was a great way to see the lights and the city by dusk or evening. It was a must do for the trip. Easy to get to and there was a very small line for us when we went. the views are stunning.

  • 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.
