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.

One of the bigger and better aquariums in Japan. When you go there are plenty of school kids around but they are well behaved and stick to their groups. Managed to see some awesome sealife and the crabs looks tasty. Would be great for a family visit with a young family or on your own as a tourist like I did. Either way it was plenty of fun.

Best aquarium in Osaka. Easy to travel. The scale of aquarium is large and the layout is great. Can spend up to 3-4 hrs at this place. Good for family activity. The shark whale, squid, and MoraMora are very fascinating. For foreigner, show Osaka Amazing Pass to get 200¥ discount for the entrance ticket.

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.

I highly recommend this place. It was fun got to see plenty of exotic creatures in the aquarium. I fancy the preserved specimen room the most. You guys should bring a notebook when coming here since they have stamps for ya to check-in.
