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

  • The ferris wheel is one of the biggest in the world and offers a great view over Osaka and the bay. There are two kind of cabins, ones with glass bottom and regular ones, to queue for. Normally you are very quick for the regular cabins, for the glass bottom ones it can take up between 30 minutes to an hour on normal days. You can combine it with the aquarium, as they also offer combined tickets for both.

  • Great way to end a night in Osaka. I think it's better at night because you can see the city lights. The lights on the ferris wheel also has decorative patterns at night. There are transparent and coloured cars. They're both for the same cost (800 yen I believe) but there are fewer transparent cars so there might be a queue for it.

  • A 15 minute ride that you can buy alongside and entrance to the aquarium next door. Situated to the side of a mall that offers food and shopping options. The ticket price in total was 3000yen and although a little rainy on the day we still managed to see the whole city. My wife enjoyed it very much. I dont recommend people with height issues to go though as it is pretty high up!

  • If you go to the aquarium, buy the combo ticket to save 100yen off the ferris wheel. It took us about 20 minutes to go all the way around, but the views at sunset were awesome. When you get in line, you can choose a regular gondola or a transparent one with a see through floor. I'd recommend the transparent one even though it's a longer wait.

  • Awesome view of Osaka on a sunny, clear day. Buy combined pass with aquarium to save some moola. For those that want to brave the ride, the glass floored cart is available though most times, there's a bit of wait for the cart. Otherwise, enjoy the ride and the view from the standard cart. Don't shake the cart too much, it can get a bit wobbly!
