Travel Guide - Osaka Aquarium KAIYUKAN

InformationInformation

In the Osaka Harbor Village complex, this is one aquarium that is worth a visit. Osaka Aquarium KAIYUKAN is one of the largest aquariums in the world. The aquarium exhibits 580 species of fishes and animals live in the Pacific Ocean. The aquarium's 14 tanks replicate 10 areas in the Pacific Rim and some areas in Japan, and each floor where these tanks are displayed represents different ocean levels. The distinctive-looking building itself is also fascinating.
You start by taking an elevator to the top, before you begin a slow, winding descent on foot down a walkway which winds its way around the aquarium's giant main tank containing 5,400 tons of water. Here, a variety of sharks, rays and other marine life share their quarters with the aquarium's star attractions, two enormous whale sharks. They are an awesome sight, particularly when they swim right in front of you.
If you want to beat the crowds, get there for opening time. Long queues are the norm especially on weekends and holidays. Presentations have both Japanese and English captions and an environment-friendly slant to them. The aquarium also offers guided tours that takes you to the workplace of the aquarium keepers.
