The short ride allows you to see Mount Ikoma in the east and Akashi Kaikyo Bridge in the west. Located next to the world-famous Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, this attraction was built in 1997 and stands at 112.5 m (369 ft) high. As a unique feature, the Ferris wheel features colorful lights that indicate the weather forecast, such as blue for rain, orange for sun, and green for clouds.

  • Lights up beautifully at night, gradiently switching from color to color. It's a rather cheap price for a wonderful view as it climbs extremely high in the sky. The wheel spins slowly so it gives you lots of time to truly soak in the view. There are various combo packs you can purchase from the tourist centers near subways, which include passes to the aquarium, pirate ship, and rail passes.
  • Amazing views of the city with a see through cabin all to ourselves. Great value for 800 yen and a 15 min ride time. Would recommend the train / walk
  • Rode this alone but not disappointed at all. Try to get the sunset. Wonderful experience
  • One of my favourite places in Japan. Lovely shopping mall with loads of great places to shop and eat. Very ,very friendly staff and locals. Nothing is ever too much trouble
  • Initially skeptical about this one, but now stand corrected. You get to sea the land, sky and air all in one with a solid 15 minutes of peace. Recommended if you visit any nearby attraction and do lookout for combo passes to save a few yen!
