The walk-through aquarium displays an abundance of marine life, especially of the Pacific 'ring of fire' volcano belt region. It covers 30,000 animals of 600 different species from fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals and invertebrates. With a total volume of water reaching 11,000 tons, this is definitely one of the largest aquarium worth a visit.

A walkway winds its way down from the 8th floor to explore life from 10 different ocean regions and levels, from Antarctic penguins to a huge variety of tropical fish and floating jellyfish. The most popular is the largest 9 meter-deep tank, which houses a gigantic whale shark and different types of manta. There are English explanations throughout.

Highly recommend this place for toddlers and family. One of the best we have visited. Large variety of animals and fish. Brilliantly design display of each tanks. Straight forward layout, start at the top and work your ways down each floor. Very convenient with the mall and restaurants just opposite. Tip, for children with strollers, you could approach the staff members and they would lead you to the lift which is not public.

Must see attraction in Osaka. A little far out by train but well worth the visit.

Good photo opportunities and LEGO land is next door with a nice food court.

Good opportunity to see the variety of rare fish and sea creatures. Can even see penguins and touch the sharks and sting rays!

The centre tank is amazing and a must see with the huge sharks and rays.

Be careful of missing things, you aren’t allowed to go back to see things you might have missed so take your time.

Nice gift shop at the end to get some trinkets. Also has the stamp sites to complete the tour books!

This review ignores the question of whether or not animals should be held in captivity. I’m just commenting on the attraction itself, which was well put together.

The layout is really clever and gives you some great views of the sea life. There is basically one main tank in the middle and you start at the top and the path gradually circles around this tank going down with different view points along the way. On the outside there are also other tanks with other animals in.

At the end there is also an area where you can touch rays and small sharks, not my thing but if you had kids with you something I can imagine they would like.

Pretty cool, can easily spend over an hour here just relaxing and taking in the sea life. Came in during feeding time on a weekday and it was pretty cool.
