Basement floors 1 to 6 are fashion and variety stores, while floor 7 and parts of floors 5 and 6 have restaurants and basement floors 2 and floors 8 and 9 are amusement floors. The biggest feature is a giant Ferris wheel painted in red with a diameter of 75m that is installed in the upper part of the building. The Ferris wheel is illuminated by computer-controlled spotlights day and night and is the symbol of the facility. The entrance is on the 7th floor and each gondola rises above the roof and 106 meters above the ground and presents a panoramic view of central Osaka.

Hep five is a ferris wheel on the roof of a mall. It’s not a must visit place in Osaka because it’s just a ferris wheel but I would still recommend this place if you are nearby this. Since it’s a ferris wheel located on top of a building, it’s not difficult to find this from far distance away. I saw this while I was walking by and just gave it a try. I enjoyed the great city view from the top. Since the ferris wheel is built on top of a building, you can get better and wider view of the city. This ferris wheel doesn’t take much time to spin once, so I recommend giving it a try.
