Tempozan Ferris Wheel (天保山大観覧車)


Amusement Park / Theme Park

The Tempozan Ferris Wheel is located in Tempozan Harbor Village in Osaka’s Bay Area. When it opened to the public in 1997, the wheel, which has a height of 112.5 meters and a diameter of 100 meters, was the largest ferris wheel in the world, and consequently attracted a great deal of interest. During the 15-minute ride, visitors can enjoy magnificent views of the Kinki region, including the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, Kansai International Airport, Mt. Rokko, etc. The Tempozan Ferris Wheel has four see-through cabins with transparent walls and a transparent floor, which are very popular with young people and tourists. At night, the Ferris Wheel is illuminated using a combination of indirect and direct LED lighting, which is a sight not to be missed.

The Ferris wheel is tall, and I mean tall. Its about a 15 minute ride to make a complete circuit. But the views are amazing. You can choose between a regular capsule or a clear bottom for the same...

          While Osaka prefecture is the country's second smallest prefecture, its capital, Osaka City, is the country's third-largest and arguably one of the most popular in the Kansai region thanks to its vibrant nightlife, the Osaka people's openness, and its much-loved cuisine, which has earned it the nickname "the nation's kitchen."
