  • Kururin Ferris wheel


    This Ferris wheel is 45 meters in diameter and rotates once in about 15 minutes. Positioned on the roof of the Iyotetsu Takashimaya Department Store, the highest point is 85m above ground. Riders can enjoy sights including the Matsuyama Plain and Matsuyama Castle, and farther in the distance, islands floating in the Seto Inland Sea. Nighttime views looking down from high on the Ferris wheel are exceptional as well. The two see-through gondolas are also popular. The floor and seats are all transparent, making you feel as if you are floating in the sky. The gondolas are fully air-conditioned, so you can comfortably enjoy your walk in the air.
