Great view of city and harbour

Great way to see part of the city but you can only see the outskirts and Universal City. Still a must do in Osaka

It is the highest one as it mentioned on website, and should be able to look at almost the whole Osaka if the sky is clear! I went there in the evening therefore I can look at the big wheel under sunset and also the ringbow lighting effect 😍

I took the transparent capsule. No price difference from normal capsule. The view was breathtaking though I was a little scared because of the height and transparency of the capsule. Overall a memorable experience. Ride it at night for a picturesque view of Osaka at night or sometimes kobe.

Take your time to enjoy the view. Only 15 minutes for complete cycle. You can choose the transparent gondola but you have to wait longer that the normal gondola.

There are 2 types of room you could choose, with transparent floor or normal unit. I didnt choose the transparent floor as I need to wait for 40 minutes for that. Maybe due to the rain, the view from this Ferris Wheel is just so so. Further, it only allow us to be inside for 1 round which I think... More

You must try the ferris wheel after visit to Kaiyukan Aquarium, located right next building. Do purchase the amazing pass before you start any visits to places of interest. The pass includes train rides (except JR) and free admission to most of the places of interests and rides.

It only took about 15 minutes to complete a round and it's free of charge if you have an Amazing Osaka Pass (which is why I rode it). You can take pretty pictures of this Ferris wheel at night time because of it's colourful neon lights.and the view from up there is just wow. You can see USJ from the... More

Despite people saying there is no difference, but there is in fact a huge difference. The base is translucent, but all parts are transparent. If feels special. The bottom of the normal gondolas are fully cover all the way to knee level. It's for kids imo. But if press for time, just choose normal one. But I will like to... More
