Osaka Aquarium (Kaiyukan)4.6
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.

Fascinating place with the sea animals so well done on arranging each floor according to the depth of the sea. And the soft toys are super cute also! Definitely worth visiting!
When I see the otters swimming and washing their face. It is so cute! Everyone were crowding around to look.

Great for family. Kid surely love this place. You can spend 3-4 good hours here at the aquarium. The best way to get here is by subway and about 10 minutes walk. But along the way from the station there is so many nice building and restaurant along the way. You can also enjoy the boat trip which will take you around Osaka bay. An 1 hour ride is one of the best way to enjoy Osaka. Tempozan Ferris Wheel 🎡 is also next to aquarium the view is breath taking.

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.

It is said that Osaka Aquarium is the biggest in Japan , well it was wonderful seeing the stingrays , sharks and especially the jellyfish. A lot of species to see with detailed descriptions or audio guides. Celebrating the 30th anniversary. This beautiful building has elevators for wheelchair access and ramps, restrooms are available almost in every floor. This experience is recommended for couples , children can become easily bored.
