It cost JPY800 for a ride. I downloaded a coupon from the website and got JPY100 discount. We were lucky that we did... More

Been wanting to rise the Ferris Wheel and finally was able to ride one. As we have the Osaka Pass, the ride was free. Just love to see the scenery from the top of the wheel looking down at the harbour.

The Tempozan Ferris Wheel is a fun and very good way to see parts of Osaka that are near the waterfront.

Singapore flyer is much bigger. Within 20 minutes you have done your turn. Not that great views. Although clean, it felt dated

If you are visiting the Osaka Aquarium the ferris wheel is basically on your way and worth riding. Do not bother and wait for an all transparent cabin since the normal ones offer enough glass to have a good view.

We took a glass cubicle which was transparent like a 360* view, the ferris wheel was a total waste of money. We could hardly see anything, reason was rain. Not sure how it would be otherwise.

I bought one day Osaka pass which provided free entrance for abt 25 places including this Ferri Wheel. Try to choose the all transparent deck (only 4), it is amazing!

Having been on many ferris wheels in Japan (Odaiba, Yokohama, Tokyo), I thought it was great that this one was far bigger and only ¥800. Most of them are a few hundred yen more. Worth it!
