Got in through Osaka Day pass. Has a speaker with aux cable to play your song. Recommended!
I think this was one of the best attractions in Osaka. The line wasn't that long, the view was great, and it was cool that you could connect your phone to the speakers and listen to music as you were looking at the city lights.
Went on a drizzling evening. We played our own music during the ride. It was a memorable experience. We bought the group photo taken before the ride. The photographer was speaking in Jap which we couldn't understand a bit but he was sure funny.
Went at night about an hour before closing,the line wasn’t long. One of the best ways ito see the city night view.
Well priced, spacious and clean. Staff were friendly. Suitable for anyone. Great view.
Wonderfull experience to go in osaka, dont forget to buy osaka amazing pass. Its a great deal!
Great views of the city. Easy access and food hall is great nearby.
Great experience! It was very easy to buy ticket and there was no line whatsoever to get up on the ferries wheel even on weekend. It didnt make us dizzy with the movement, it was steady enough and overall was a very smooth ride. It looks small from afar but it was actually quite big!!! If you are scared of height you might feel a bit dizzy. You can get a picture with additional price but unfortunately on the bottom of the wheel only. You should go during the lunch time if you want no queue or go during night time to get beautiful night scenery of osaka.
I like it there .. everything was perfect .. ride was 15 minutes and fees per person was 600¥
Love this place, if you're on the highest point especially on night you can see how beautiful the city is.
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.
The acrylic windows have all hazed up and you can't really see much at all. Coupled with all the high rise around, I think the other wheel is a better way to spend your time.
Nice entertainment on the shopping mall Hep Five. Just 600 yen. Sometimes the queue is quiet long
You can play your own music in the cabin with their provided Audio system. They provide 3.5mm Aux in. Not applicable for iPhone 7 or above version.
The price is good compared to other places (¥600) with nice views, however, as mentioned in other reviews, the windows of the cabin seem kind of dirty so the view is not 100% clear. To compensate, they have AC when the days are hot and an audio-technica speaker that you can plug your phone into.
