Tempozan Ferris Wheel


Tempozan Ferris Wheel is one of the very first thing I noticed when the plane is about to land at Kansai International Airport. Well, it’s one of the world’s tallest Ferris Wheel, currently 6th.  At first I thought the colors are just for show and it was revealed at the ride that the colored lights provide weather forecast. How cool is that? 🙂

It is located at the Bay Area, just walking distance from Osakako Station of Chuo Line Subway. Admission fee is 800 yen (FREE if you have the Amazing Osaka Pass). There are two types of pods, the regular colored pod (just few minutes waiting time) and the see-through pod (more waiting time since there’s only a few of these). You can see the estimated waiting time when you’re about to select which pod you’ll ride. See-through is nothing special really haha so go for the regular pod. (Trust me!)

I love the soothing voice that keeps the fear of heights away! It narrates everything about the ferris wheel as well as the details about the very views you see. Share the ride with your better half and have an unforgettable experience together with the breathtaking sunset and the beautiful Osaka Bay Area ❤

If you’re in Osaka, be sure to add this to your must-go list!

Below are some pictures taken during our time at Tempozan 🙂
