    Tempozan Giant Ferris Wheel

    475 Reviews
    7.7km from downtown
    "Came on June 6, 2013. The Tianbaoshan Ferris wheel was once the largest and most advanced Ferris wheel in the world. Since you are coming to Osaka, you will come and see it. Take the subway central line to "Osaka Port" and walk a few steps. Take a circle Ferris wheel for about 20 minutes. The Ferris wheel is on the edge of the harbor, and it is in broad daylight when it comes, so there is nothing to look at. When you arrive at the highest point of the Ferris wheel, the scenery you see is more general, and the view may be better at night."
    Highlights: Located next to Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, the Tempozan Giant Ferris Wheel features a spectacular "skyrocket fireworks" lighting effect at night, in which the Ferris wheel is colorfully lit with beautiful patterns. These lights also act as a real-time weather forecast for the next day's weather.
