Tempozan Harbour village houses some of fascinating tourist destinations in Osaka such as the Kaiyukan, Ferris Wheel, and the Santa Maria cruise boat. Getting here is very easy by using the subway. Also good if experienced in the night, especially the Ferris Wheel because you can see the Osaka night lights from the top.

We visited Tempozan looking for lunch after we'd been to Osaka aquarium as it's right next door. It has a replica of a traditional food stall street inside, which is just so tacky and awful. We found the food really poor and the atmosphere quite depressing. Go somewhere else.

Only took an interest because this place had a kangaroo in a room with an alpaca, turtles, capybaras, owls and more. No trees or dirt or space to run. Kids running around though. Poor roo standing in a corner. I don't think this place would cut it back home. If you visit Ferris wheel or aquarium you will probably pass... More

This village is a place of respite after you visit the Osaka Aquarium. Nothing fancy. My daughter bought a doggie doll here but you can find a cheaper price in Haneda airport. A bit like San Fransisco harbor but in smaller scale.

Passed through on the way to the aquarium . Simply another mall for shopping. Aquarium was the draw for my family. Liked the exhibits having multi species exhibits, touch tank, and wasn't too crowded the mid week day we visited
