    A good, cheap activity
    My kids loved this so much that we went back and rode it again at night. It costs 600 yen per person, but kids under six are free. It was hard to find, because the centre is undergoing renovation. The only lift that goes straight to level 7 and the Ferris wheel, is the one directly at the front of the mall. You cannot take an escalator there unless you take the ones near the hanging whales. There was no wait during the day, however when we went back about 8pm on Saturday night, they estimated a 60 minute wait. We waited about 30 minutes. Was a good, cheap activity.

    A nice summer day activity!
    We really enjoyed this! We spotted this ferris wheel from our hotel, and set out to find it. Especially enjoyed that it was air conditioned (it’s hot in July!!) and there’s a bluetooth speaker you can connect to for your own music while you ride. I would recommend “Summer City” by Tube for some good vibes. Take the elevator up to the 7th floor from the main Hep Five entrance (you’ll see a giant whale) and then you’ll be right there! During the day there was no wait time - we bought tickets and were able to go on right away. Probably about 30 min in total going around? The cars are comfortable for about 4 people - it was great for us 2 with our shopping bags. Worth checking out some of the bargain stores at Hep Five too!

    Fun experience - Osaka amazing pass
    Fun experience. We visited around lunch time on a day in June and there was no wait at all. Access through the Hep shopping mall - we followed the signs easily. It was included in our Osaka Amzing Pass, so there was no charge. Took around 20-30mins. There was lots to see across the city and felt safe!

    Standout experience to see all of Osaka
    We loved our experience! Little kids are free so it was only 1200 yen for us to go on. The most cost effective and fun thing that we’ve done in Osaka! Highly recommend (there’s also a Disney store in the shopping centre to visit before or after 😉)

    Free with Osaka Amazing Pass
    Hep Five is right next to Umeda Station. You can see it from afar. The ride time is about 15-20 mins. You can enjoy the city view and identify some buildings with the marking on the window. It is not really a must do but very enjoyable.

This is a surprisingly large Ferris wheel for being right in the thick of the urban area. We enjoyed the ride at night, when we could see the lights of the city. Free with the Osaka Amazing pass.

The ride was nice, with amazing views over the Umeda area. There was a bit of a line when I got there but the wait was not long. I definitely recommend taking a ride if you're in the area.

Relaxing ride with great views of Osaka. Free with the Osaka Amazing pass. Quick access to the ride. Really enjoyed it as the Tempozan Ferris Wheel was closed for maintenance on Oct. 17

Good place to visit but be sure to train up before you go, a lot of walking. Do use the onsen facilities as much as possible. It helps a lot.

This is recommended for shopping in Umeda. There are many types of shops. And sometimes celebrities hold pop-up stores for a limited time.

We were surprised to see a huge Ferris Wheel in the middle of Osaka skyscrapers. I’m sure it’s a great way to see the city with incredible views. Unfortunately, I was too scared to go up so high so declined going on it. It looks like a lot of fun though!
