We all know its a big wheel. I takes about 15 minutes to make one complete turn.

OK I had good luck last time so I will try again. Let say Osaka, just for giggles. I never knew there were so many of these behemoths.

They have one this size in Osaka and two in Tokyo. Given the position of the ship and the bridge, I would agree that this is the one in Osaka.

Definitely not the Eye in London. That one is in a park like setting.

Osaka is probably right.

And I positively agree, you will never catch ME up on that thing!

Just for giggles Bennie got it right again. And Marc is correct also.

It is in Osaka, Japan.
