  • We arrived as the ticket booth opened (10am) and didn’t have to wait in any lines. We chose the glass bottom one. It moves slowly so even those with a fear of heights will find it fine. Very clean...

  • We got there late and the service was still excellent. Japanese are amazing. My wife took all the photos and she enjoyed Japan a lot. Osaka is the best livable city in Japan and there is a reason for it. You get to see the night view of Osaka from above. The ferries wheel is not scary and it is quite enjoyable for tourists actually. We still have to walk a short distance to the place at night, and it is not dangerous or scary at all like in the US. Osaka is a place I will definitely go back again.
  • Great experience!! The run was quite fast just 15 min per round. There are 2 kinds of cabin: glass and normal. Most people wait for the glass which are really limited in number. Normal one is faster to get your turn. The cabins are equiped with AC so not hesitate to take a go even in hot afternoon. But I think around the sunset is the best!!
