We bought the combo aquarium and ferris wheel ticket for JPY3000 (Adults). Good place to rest and enjoy the view after walking the aquarium.

We bought the Osaka kaiyu ticket priced 2.550¥ which includes entrance ticket to the Osaka aquarium, unlimited subway rides, and 100 yen discount for the ferris wheel (best deal!) . We went there during night so the view is amazing!!! Definitely prefer this giant ferris wheel than any pbservation towers. It also completed with a guide through the speaker which... More

If you visit the aquarium it's next to it. But I wouldn't travel there just to take the Ferris wheel. It's about 15 minutes. You can pay a little more to take the car with transparent bottom. You can see the bay, bridges, aquarium and port from top. Otherwise I think it's slow and boring for JPY800

I went here with my boyfriend thinking it would be cool to see the views and such but really nothing is out here but the aquarium. It's cool if you went to the aquarium then did this ferris wheel but to come out here just for this was a waste. The ferris wheel at HEP5 in Umeda is much better.

This is a good spot for the night view of Osaka as you can see from up top. There is English introduction inside the cart for seeing points. It is easily accessible by subway and it is a 10 minute walk away from the closest exit. The mall below the wheel can satisfy one's hunger. There is a Legoland inside... More

This is a good attraction to go to on a clear day together with the aquarium. They do sell tickets together for a cheaper price or you can ask your hotel whether they have combo deals that includes the Osaka Castle and other attractions. A good view of the city and surroundings can be had with narrated broadcast in English... More

Tempozan Ferris Wheel is on of the largest ferris wheel in Asia. Getting there is pretty easy by using subway, but it'll take longer because it's located pretty far away from city center. There are two type of cars, one of them is an all glass transparent car so we chose to ride that one. The queue for this car... More
