The bright red Ferris Wheel of the Hep Five shopping mall is the building's main landmark. At its highest point it reaches 106 metres above the ground. The gondolas are air conditioned, so your views of Osaka and as far as Mount Ikoma will be as comfortable as they are spectacular. The night views are just as incredible. The ride lasts around 15 minutes.
As for the mall itself… considering it receives nearly 17 million shoppers annually, it is fairly popular. Most of the 100 shops here are fashion-based, focused on young women. There are two replica whales hanging around for some reason.

Fancy Ferris Wheel in the heart of Osaka. Wait times are very long in peak hours, and also depending on the person the tickets can be a bit pricey. Some people claim to get dizzy but that really depends on the person. Apart from all that, it gives great views especially during golden hour or nighttime. Enjoy your ride :)
Decent ferris wheel located on top of a shopping mall. Views are not so great, as it is not very big, but it is the experience that counts. Able to connect your phone's music to speaker with provided headphone jack. Relaxing to ride at night and admission is included in Osaka Amazing Pass.
Ferris wheel in middle of the town. Free by using osaka amazing pass.
Definitely enjoyed it. Recommended. We had a great view of the city around us, with pictures telling which building was what. We were surprised to find out you could play any music of your choice (from your device that you attach via headphone jack) for the duration of the ride, which really made it all the more enjoyable. There was also a Jump shop with some anime merchandise on the way up.
Good view, but very dirty glasses in the cabin. You won't be able to do good photos from inside the cabin. The wheel can be accessed from the 7th floor of the building.
