[Osaka, Japan] Meters up in a Giant Ferris Wheel by the bay

A view of the bay area from side to bottom up a transparent gondola  – 10.03.15

After this make-believe underwater in OSAKA AQUARIUM KAIYUKAN is this ride up in the air on a ferris wheel with lights that predict the weather the following day –which that night was red orange, a sign of a sun the next day.

Capping off visit to Osaka Bay Area, went to try out a hole-in-the-wall bar on street towards the station.
