Nice view from the top. Some carriages have see through floors. It's a leisurely rotation so you wont' even notice the motion.

Very nice place to go if you are going to the aquarium or Legoland. The view is excellent. There are 2 types of cabin- normal and glass bottom. We took the normal one and the view is breathtaking.

Transfer at Nishikujo is very easy, just step off the train to your right as you come into the station, the anti clockwise Osaka loop line platform is in front of you.
