FREE entry to more than 30 iconic attractions in Osaka
One of the biggest perks of having the Osaka Amazing Pass is enjoying FREE entry to some of the city’s most iconic attractions. Here’s some of the highlights!
This postcard-worthy castle had a rough past and was rebuilt multiple times, but the Osaka Castle of today has withstood the air raids of both World War I and World War II and even comes with its own elevator!
Jump right into history and go all the way up to the 10th floor for a bird’s eye view of the park and beyond. Each floor tells a different phase of Osaka’s history – something all history buffs will definitely appreciate!
Umeda Sky Building Floating Garden
Umeda Sky Building Rooftop Garden is exactly the kind of place you’d bring your significant other to on your first date. The ground is dotted with luminescent dots that resemble the night sky, and there are even photo opportunities for couples to immortalize their date!
We recommend going at night to catch the best of the city lights, though this is also when it starts to get rather crowded. If you’re visiting during Winter, be sure to layer up – it gets pretty chilly at the top!
Tempozan Ferris Wheel
Ferris Wheels never get old! The Tempozan Giant Ferris Wheel is one of the largest Ferris Wheels in the world and offers unobstructed views of Osaka.
Try and spot the Osaka Aquarium while in the air! The ride can be pretty unnerving especially when you’re 112.5 metres from the ground – but the view is all worth it.
Iconic of Osaka – the Tsutenkaku Tower was built in 1912 as a symbol of the new world and commonly referred to as the Eiffel Tower of Japan. You can go all the way to the top of the tower, but before that you definitely have to pay Billiken a visit.
Billiken is a deity that appeared in the dreams of American artist Florence Pretz and has become the resident symbol of good luck and prosperity in Osaka. Rub his left foot for love, and right foot for prosperity!
Bonus: Don Quijote
We won’t spoil this for you but just along the river in Dotonburi lies a shop called Don Quijote with some of the biggest varieties of Japanese snacks, beauty products, household wares and random items like onesies!
Quell your Gudetama withdrawal symptoms and lay hands on all the matcha flavoured goodness before you head home. An even bigger plus is you’ll get to claim tax from all your purchases so enjoy your shopping guilt-free!
P.S. Don’t miss out on the takoyaki-flavoured Pretz.
Unlimited travels on trains and buses
Both passes will give you unlimited travels on the Osaka Municipal subway and Osaka City buses for the duration of your ticket.
The One-Day Pass includes travel on selected parts of private railways including the Hankyu Railway, Hanshin Railway, Keihan Electric Railway, Kinki Nippon Railway and Nankai Railway.
Check out the areas of travel for the One-Day Pass and Two-Day Pass.

Get money off your dinner or go crazy at Round One with your friends – the choice is yours!
Where to buy the Osaka Amazing Pass

How to Use The Osaka Amazing Pass
The Osaka Amazing Pass takes the form of a physical ticket that is valid for activation within a window period of about 4 days. This means you will need to activate the pass either by having it scanned or by taking the subway.
When using the subway, the Osaka Amazing Pass replaces your train ticket – simply insert into the ordinary ticket slot at the gantry and enter. You’ll have to scan your ticket to enter some attractions while others simply require you to flash your pass for entry.
Most people assume the pass is valid for 24-hours regardless of the time of activation, but that is not the case. The One-Day Pass is valid for 24-hours between 05:00 to 04:59, and the Two-Day Pass for 48-hours 05:00 to 04:59.
Do be careful not to lose your ticket as it is not refundable or replaceable!
Tripsle yourself an amazing Osaka holiday
It’s also good to know that you can pick up some 4G WiFi as well as Kansai Airport Express tickets at the same collection point so you can save yourself the massive hassle of travelling to multiple places!
