  • Very expensive for what it is, but I guess maintenance is expensive. I went with my young son at his insistence toward the end of the operation hours so the line was short, it moved fast anyway. Nice....  more

  • Loved this wheel. It's one of the biggest in Osaka. It's beautiful in the night specially. It reflects multiple colors which can be seen from far away. Ticket price is 800 yen and it's worth it. No outside food or beverage is allowed inside the wheel. Each cabin can have 6 passenger seats. It takes almost 20 minutes to rotate the entire wheel. The view from the above is spectacular. You can see the whole Osaka Bay from it. Recommended !
  • Amazing!! I advice to ride it at the sunset
