    Ferris Bueller's day in Japan
    If you're coming for the aquarium or Lego Land, you may as well do this. You can choose from fully see-through carts (which have a huge wait time) or normal carts (your view is not impeded at all). We got straight on the normal cart. Great views all around!!

    So pretty at night
    Most reviewers have already written most of what there is to say about the wheel. It's a lot less to ride in the non-transparent gondolas. The view is just as good and all that you will miss is transparency beneath your feet. Also, the lines for the transparent gondolas is very very long. Gorgeous at night and you will certainly capture some amazing photos.

    Free with Osaka Amazing Pass
    We went there early in the morning on a rainy weekday. There we just 2 of us at that time. We chose the car with see through bottom. It is not entirely see through and I don't think it adds more thrill. The ride is about 15-20 mins. We did enjoy the view even though it rained heavily.

At one time, this used to be the tallest Ferris wheel in the world. It's far from that now, but it's still a very impressive ride. We enjoyed it free with our Osaka Amazing Pass.

Two options with see through glass or covered bottom. The ride about 15 to 20 minutes. Night view is lovely. Unfortunately it is not covered by klook epass which was indicated on their website.

Wouldnt miss the site of this when you get of the train which is only a 5 minute walk from the station and easy to walk too.situated right next door to the aquarium and offering some off the best views you will get of osaka and surrounds!
800Yen for an adult which you will get option for a normal gondola or the clear gondola which offers a few more views being a glass box which depending on times you will most likely have to wait in line i waited for about 10 mins where as the normal gondola there was no line and straight into a free cabin.

Unfoutnantly i couldnt of picked a worse time to go on as the weather was a rainy cloudy day with no signs of clear sunshine so the box had some drops for perfect photos of the city structure,the boat harbour below and the fantastic views of the bridge and highway loops which i think looks great and a well engineered design would love to have taken a car on it for a good time on the roads.
I personally think this would be fantastic and the best time to take the ride at night when its dark and lit up like a christmas tree with the city lights in the background ect. I wouldnt think any of the residents in there aparments so cloae by would ever hate seeing the ride out there balcony when its lit up thats for sure.
If your visiting the aquarium then i would expect you would be going on this ride for the views

The sight was beautiful. All the waterfronts and the city lights was magnificent. I highly recommend this to people who visit Japan and want to do something fun.

The Tempozan Ferris Wheel is a hard-to-miss place. It towers above the Tempozan Market shopping mall and is just within the vicinity of the Kaiyukan Aquarium. Almost certainly you will pay this ferris wheel a visit just because you are within the vicinity.

The lines were not long. The attraction being what it is, people are always steadily getting on and getting of the carriage. For a higher price you can pay to be in the carriage with a transparent floor. They do not allow for strollers to be parked in and around the ferris wheel, the attendants there will either fold it for you or if the stroller is small enough, allow it to be put on the carriage with you while still being open.

The ferris wheel ride takes about 15 minutes as you ascend, reach the peak and then begin to descend. We rose the ferris wheel at around 1 PM and the skies were clear so we got a great view of the Osaka skyline and Osaka bay.

We did get a good view of osaka up until the sea but the capsule is pretty small. My husband who is 6’2 was having space issue, it was definitely built for japanese people. Overall, worth the money

If you are traveling from Tokyo to Osaka then you should not try this. In Tokyo you have Kasai Rinkai Park and odaiba park fairies wheel which is much much better than this. This is not value for money at all.
