Went around 9pm during the week and had a 15 min wait. The night views are great. The windows were a bit foggy but could still take pictures carefully. Fun evening stop.

I last visited this place in 2005 and it had not changed over the years. The Ferris Wheel moves slowly round and has great views of Osaka city. The staff are helpful and very friendly. It is very well priced and I loved the ride.

With signboard you can easy find you way to the Ground floor of Hep Five Ferris Wheel. We went around 6pm, there is not much people, queue for 10 mins and got our ride on time for sunset.

It is located at the top of the shopping mall. Takes around 10 to 15 mins and you could connect your mobile to listen some music XD Kind of scary somehow due to the altitude.

Surprisingly, no queue in the drizzling evening. There's a built in speaker in each gondola which you can plug in your phone via the cable and enjoy your music! Could be sucha romantic ride overlooking the night view of Umeda.

We had seen this on a previous trip to Osaka, but on this occasion we thought we would explore this supposed entertainment park. But really it is just another shopping centre and nothing special either.

My friends took me here upon my visit to Japan! It was a great way to see the city from a new angle! The view was amazing as we went at sunset! I would recommend going, especially at sunset, as it was really fun!

This Ferris wheel is located in the Hep Five mall. And this mall, from my observation, is frequent by local youngsters (tweens or below 20s), and there’s no real reason for a tourist to visit this mall. The Ferris wheel ride, although uniquely located at...More
