    "The stars at kaiyukan are the whale sharks. Thought they will be very big but not exactly. Still worth a visit if you will be in osaka for 3-4 days. We went at 3pm on a Sunday and it was mad crowded. Luckily our hotel helped us to book tickets so we skipped ticketing queue. Would advise everybody to get your tickets before coming. Or go early in the morning!"

    "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."
    7.7km from downtown
    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. At the visitors can look over the busy Osaka Port and gaze far into the distance to Kansai International Airport in the south and Akashi Kaikyo Bridge in the west.

    "Tap Five Department Store? It's located on the roof of the building. I didn't expect much before riding, but I was satisfied as soon as I got on! The red Ferris wheel adds a Christmas atmosphere, and the night view taken from the top is truly spectacular. It was Christmas season, so there was a pretty Christmas tree in front of it, so it was very nice to take pictures. There are many places to shop around, such as GU, Unicro, Don Quixote! The location is also very good because it is right next to Umeda Station where many subway lines are transferred! Those who want to take a life shot are very recommended ㅎㅎ !!! Don't forget to turn on the fres and take pictures for life shots~~~ 🥰😽"

    "The Ferris wheel of Dotonbori's God of Wealth is very festive. The overall structure is oval. It is more mini than those high-end goods on the beach. However, it is still very fun to have such a bustling old neighborhood. It takes less than 20 minutes to turn around. The night lights are brilliant. The body feels good."

    "I didn't want to go, but I found it unexpectedly fun. Although it was not big, there were not many people. The sons had a great time. They had almost played for a long time. If they didn't play, they could wait for the Japanese to play well. 😂"
