Osaka's Tempozan Ferris Wheel Renews Its Lighting!
April 16, 2015
Tempozan Ferris Wheel debuted in July 1997. It’s one of the tallest Ferris wheel in Japan, having a height of 112.5 meters (369 feet) and a diameter of 100 meters (328 feet). It stands next to the largest scale of aquarium, Kaiyukan. The renovated illumination utilizes the latest LED system to combine indirect and direct lights for the first time. The indirect light can present softened colors, while the direct light can present the vivid colors representing kaleidoscope or fireworks. Tempozan Ferris Wheel is the first of any other wheels to introduce the state-of-the art system. The most advanced technology allows the wheel to display more complicated lighting patterns and create the beautiful art on the massive canvas, 100 meters in diameter. The Ferris wheel displays the time every 15 minutes, and welcomes the visitors showing the message “Welcome to Osaka!”. It also tells people weather information with the lighting pattern of the sun and an umbrella.
