Nice experience to test our fear.... We select this as one of free attractions using 1 day Osaka Amazing Pass. It's not so big ferris wheel because it is mounted on top of a mall. So dont be afraid, kids will not be fear to try for the first time. The view during our visit was not so good because... More

Hep 5 Ferris wheel offers a great view of the city. You can buy Osaka 2 day pass and visit here for free. Best time to visit is before sunset. A must visit if you are in Osaka

We took the Hep 5 Ferris wheel after having visited Umeda Sky Building. We weren't prepare to pay the observatory fee at Umeda Sky Building. The Hep 5 Ferris wheel entrance fee was cheaper and as it was a novelty to us, we decided to go for the ride. We had the whole cubicle to ourselves ( a party of... More

We went on this ferris wheel as soon as we got to Osaka and it was a good way to see the surrounding area quite quickly. The windows were quite dirty which made taking any decent photographs quite difficult. Was worth the time to go on though.

My 6 year old loved going on this. I like that the cabins have skyline pics on each site N/S/E/W showing the names of the buildings, bridges, etc
