The ferris wheel is located next to the canal in Dotombori. It was “squished” in between the buildings and does not look spectacular. There was a long queue to ride it, so we have decided to skip it

We were about to pay for this ride when one of the employees told us that If you buy ANY item in the shop you can go for a free ride on the Ferris wheel! Admission alone is 1200 so we entered and bought some...More

Great views from the rotating pods in the Don Quixote wheel - high above the neon lights and canals! Definitely worth a seat and admire the views from above.

I did this a while ago but I think it was 600 yen. It was closed for the better part of a decade. It lasts 15 minutes and you get a nice views. Better to do it when it's not raining.

The Ferris Wheel is right at the heart of Dotonbori. An unique Ferris Wheel. Separate entrance from the store, which is nice because the store usually has a huge crowd even late at night. View is very nice at night. You feel like you are...More

This location is right in the Dotonbori and was quite hectic traffic wise. There are many other stores in Osaka that are not as difficult to navigate through. Don Quijote stores were great while in Japan!
