Tempozan Ferris Wheel, Osaka


Tempozan Ferris Wheel offers great panoramic views of Osaka Bay both day and night.

An interesting feature of Tempozan Ferris Wheel are the lights on its arms that predict the weather for the following day. If the lights are orange sunny weather is forecast, green equals cloudy, and blue signifies rain.

The Tempozan Ferris Wheel is close to the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan and both are accessed from Osaka-ko Station on the Chuo Line of Osaka's metro.
