Tempozan Ferris wheel
A 15-minute flight that offers a panoramic view of the city of Osaka.
With a height of 112.5 meters and a diameter of 100 meters, this is one of the world's largest Ferris wheels, lasting about 15 minutes per lap. On a clear day you can see as far as Mount Ikoma in Nara Prefecture to the east, the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge in Hyogo Prefecture to the west, Kansai International Airport to the south, and Mount Rokko in Hyogo Prefecture to the north. While you are here in Osaka, you can feel as if you are taking a round trip around the Kansai area. While boarding, audio guides of the scenery in both English and Japanese are played in the cabins.
Of the 60 cabins, three are accessible for wheelchair users. In addition, eight of the cabins are "see-through gondolas," which are transparent from the feet to the ceiling, allowing you to experience the sensation of floating, perfect for testing your mettle!
At night, the Ferris wheel is illuminated with the world's first illumination technique for a Ferris wheel, which was selected for the Good Design Award in 2015, using LED lights to create large firework patterns, a giant kaleidoscope of colors, and an animated weather forecast for the next day. This is a must-see spot for making memories, as you can enjoy a romantic walk in the air.
Right next to the spot is Kaiyukan, one of the world's largest aquariums, Tempozan Marketplace, which includes shopping and a food court, and Starbucks Coffee. Let's take a look around here and there while boarding.
