Tempozan Ferris Wheel - Review
Before there was the London Eye, there was THE Tempozan Ferris Wheel! Situated at the mouth of the Osaka Bay, Tempozan Ferris Wheel was the biggest, tallest and most technologically advanced observation wheel in the world (it was later surpassed by the gigantic London Eye). From the top, one gets to see beautiful panoramic views of the sea, the mountains and the entire city of Osaka. During the night, the Ferris wheel is illuminated with bright colours and makes for a delightful sight to look at. This illuminated sight of the wheel along with the views it provides has made it into a popular romantic date spot with the locals. Trivia- the Tempozan Ferris Wheel is 112.5 meters in height and has 60 eight-passenger cars (maximum capacity of 480 people).

Tempozan Ferris Wheel, Osaka Reviews
Got the combo ticket with the aquarium which was fantastic value. The queue splits into 2 at the end, 1 for a normal cabin and 1 for the glass floor cabin. There are far fewer glass floor ones available and so the wait was 30 minutes longer. The views from normal cabin were still great and the lights at night time look cool.
If you are using the Osaka Amazing Pass, you can enjoy the the ride on the Tempozan Ferris wheel and the Santa Maria ship ride for free!! When it opened some 20 years back, it was the biggest Ferris wheel then! The view is awesome! You can enjoy the entire bay view, especially so in the evening!
Went there in the afternoon. View was clear so it was great. I think it would be better if I had visited it at night. You can choose to get the transparent floor cabin but the queue will be longer.
Wonderful night view overseeing osaka and kansai. There are options for either transparent box or colourful one. The difference between these two are such that the transparent one would have transparent platform while the colourful one would be non-transparent. Usually, there would be a queue for the transparent box.
🎡😥Usually I'm little bit afraid of ferris wheels, but it was so stable and smooth that I would reccommend this one to anyone. The ride itself takes about 15 minutes and the view is great. You can also choose a transparent floor cabin, but the wait is longer for these. I waited for 15 minutes, but it was 2 pm.
