Osaka’s landmark, a red huge “HEP FIVE Ferris Wheel” with a diameter of 75m.
The HEP Five: a shopping complex with specialty shops geared for young people, boasts Kita's most recognizable symbol: a bright red Ferris wheel on its roof. From an air conditioned gondola at the top of the wheel 106 meters above the ground, you can get a splendid view of downtown, of Osaka harbor, and all the way out to Mount Ikoma. Adjacent to HEP Five is HEP Navio, a fashionable shopping complex that includes a Cineplex and restaurants.
