The Glico Man has always been one of Dotonbori’s famous landmarks, but the giant Ferris wheel, a long forgotten icon, is out to reclaim its status. Opened in 2005, the uniquely oval attraction stopped operations in June 2008, but due to public demand, it was reopened earlier this year.
You can enjoy the view of Dotonbori from above. The night ride is also beautiful.
Four people can ride in one car. The horizontal seats are special.
From this view, you can also see Abeno Harukas, the tallest building in Japan, and Tsutenkaku Tower, which has become a popular landmark in Osaka.
You can also find a gold Donpen (the official character of Don Quijote), a lucky figure at the Ferris wheel gate.
