Photographer's Note

Sitting at the mouth of the Osaka Bay is the enormous Tempozan Giant Ferris Wheel, formerly the biggest, tallest and most technologically advanced observation wheel in the world (now surpassed by the even more massive British Airways London Eye). From high up in the air you can enjoy a panoramic view of the sea, the mountains, and the entire city of Osaka. On the seaward side is the Akashi Straits Bridge in the distance; on the landward side downtown Osaka and Mt. Rokko. The night view with illumination is so romantic that this Ferris wheel is famous as a date spot. It is 112.5 meters in height, has 60 eight-passenger cars (for a maximum capacity of 480 people), plus the world first "skyrocket fireworks" lighting pattern with illuminations of 100 meters in diameter. It also boasts the world first transmission of weather information by 100-meter-diameter illumination.

There are several illumination works posted, i have yet to see the expanding spiral art work on Tempozan ferris Wheel, which is the purpose of this sharing
