Early morning we set off to Tempozan Harbor Village, where we finally made a stopover to the Tempozan Giant Ferris Wheel before proceeding to the adjacent Osaka Aquarium Kaiyun. We decided to buy the best value ticket (Y3,000) entrance fee for all two attractions (aquarium + Ferris wheel).
With a soaring height of 112.5 meters (369 ft) and a diameter of 100 meters (330 ft), it was exciting just looking at the entire city of Osaka, the Tempozan Ohashi Bridge, and the Osaka Harbor in the distance. Tempozan Giant Ferris Wheel is unique because it predicts tomorrow's weather forecast with the lights on its arms that shine at night. If the lights are orange, it means the sun will shine, green means clouds, and blue is for rain.
Tempozan Ferris Wheel is in Osaka, Japan, in Tempozan Harbor Village. The address is 〒552-0022 1-1-10 Kaigandori Minato-ku, Osaka City. Visit their website for more info.
