REDHORSE OSAKA WHEEL | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Shin-Osaka Station 


A comfortable and thrilling large ferris wheel with glass-floored cabins

REDHORSE OSAKA WHEEL is the tallest ferris wheel in Japan (as of January 2017). It is located inside the large-scale complex EXPOCITY, which opened in the autumn of 2015. All gondolas are fully equipped with wide seats, heating, and air conditioning, creating a relaxing space that you wouldn't imagine possible for a ferris wheel. The floors are made of glass to make them see-through, which makes for a very thrilling ride indeed! It's a new Osaka landmark you can enjoy by day or night.
