Japan’s Biggest Ferris Wheel Lights Up at Blue Grotto Illumination Event in Osaka

16.September.2018 | SPOT

Blue Grotto Osaka is an illumination event now taking place until September 30 at Redhorse Osaka Wheel, Japan’s tallest Ferris wheel which is located at LaLaport EXPOCITY in Suita, Osaka.

 

Blue Grotto is an illumination event that first appeared in Nakameguro in winter 2014. It made a return in winter 2016 in Shibuya and again in December 2017 which almost 2.7 million people turned up to. The event also made its Hokkaido debut in Sapporo this year in February. It has established itself as one of Japan’s staple illumination events enjoyed by people from both Japan and those coming from overseas.

The first time to be held in Osaka, you can look forward to gazing at the entrancing blue lights as you are lifted up up 123 meters high in one of the carriages for a full 18-minute turn. While riding the wheel you can also choose from a selection of specially prepared pasta dishes.

The pasta is made in collaboration with Nisshin Foods under their Blue Grotto brand and is named Blue Grotto Bolognese.

You can also get your picture taken inside the BLUE CUBE photo spot. The interior is fitted with mirrors and magical blue lights that create an infinitely illuminated blue world.

 

If you head to the Redhorse Marumie Plaza on the second floor of the wheel entrance you can also check out some exclusive Blue Grotto merchandise.

 

If you’re in Osaka this month then don’t miss out this chance to enjoy gorgeous illuminations, an amazing view and some delicious pasta.
