Kaiyukan Aquarium in Osaka holds an illumination event every winter.
At 5 p.m., the public square around Kaiyukan starts to shine with colorful illuminations.
The theme for the illumination displays is sea creatures.
There are the 30-meter long illumination promenade and the big earth object at the open space in front of Kaiyukan.
You can have a fun and special time surrounded by animals made of lights, including the light display of two 20m giant whale sharks on the exterior wall.
During the illumination period, the Fantastic Light Show is held once(for 2mins) every 15 mins which moves to music between 17:00 and 21:45. Enjoy watching the illumination of swimming whale sharks in the sea of lights and the shining aurora.

Great ice cream but very crowded and little seating. Prepare to stand and wait!

Basically is a pitstop after the walkabout. Disappointed that it only deal in cash and tourists don't mind spending more if it accept card.

Loved the whale-shark ice cream and it's really a nice place to take a quick break from exploring the aquarium.
