The bright red Ferris Wheel, atop the Hep Five department store, is a local landmark. From the top — at 106 meters (348 ft) high — there are views over the city and the harbor. On a clear day you can see all the way to the Akashi Strait, which connects Osaka Bay with the Seto Inland Sea.

Each fully-enclosed cabin seats up to 4 and is complete with air conditioning, making the 15-minute ride a comfortable experience. Boarding starts at 11:00am and closes at 10:45pm.

How to buy tickets

Tickets can be purchased online or on site. Children under 6 can ride for free.
