You must have heard about the many attractions in Osaka, such as Universal Studios, Namba Shopping Street, and Osaka Castle, etc., but in this article I would like to introduce another place which you absolutely can’t afford to miss out on in Osaka. The sky-high view from the Don Quijote Dotonbori Store Ferris Wheel!
The Don Quijote Dotonbori Store Ferris wheel is an oblong-shaped Ferris wheel with a maximum height of 77.4 meters above the ground, a total width of 32 meters, and bench seats overlooking the Dotonbori River. These features make this Ferris wheel a completely different experience from any other Ferris wheel in the world!
The boarding area is on the third floor of the Don Quijote Dotonbori Store. The carriages, which have a maximum capacity of four people, turn 180 degrees horizontally to face outward when the safety bar comes down.
We also highly recommend riding the Ferris wheel at night! The night time scenery really stands out with all of the twinkling lights coming from the windows of the buildings, and the colors from the led signboards. You can even see Tsutenkaku Tower – one of the symbols of Osaka, glittering in the distance.
Up the experience with VR glasses!
This is a brand new service which provides new surprises and long lasting impressions to all of our customers by making you feel as if you are actually floating in the air outside of the carriage itself!
By wearing VR glasses while on board, passengers will be able to enjoy the spectacular day and night time views, regardless of weather conditions or time.
In addition, the view of Dotonbori, which has always been visible from “Ebisu Tower”, will become even more expansive, giving you the ability to enjoy gazing upon famous places such as Ebisu Bridge, which can be quite difficult to see from the seating positions.
