Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan is of the largest collections of aquatic life! I was amazed at how big this aquarium really is. The whole 8 floors inside the building is one big aquarium. My jaw dropped seeing at how big the tank was. Plenty of stingrays, sharks and fishes. It was also just a 5 minute walk from the station which makes it super convenient. The layout of the aquarium is very well thought out. I had a great time and definitely enjoyed myself here. Hopefully the pandemic will end soon and I can visit Osaka again!
The subway tour hall in Osakas Tianbao Mountain, although small in size, has a great design: the entrance is a tunnel-type sink, which seems to enter the sea and leads directly to the eighth floor, then along the spiral The ramp came to the fourth floor, just like coming from the ground to the bottom of the sea, and it was fun. The swimming jellyfish looks good and there are many rare fish. In the somatosensory exhibition area, there is still a chance to touch sharks, squids, etc., and it is definitely worthwhile. Finally, I bought a lot of small things in the souvenir shop~
Known as the world's largest aquarium, the Aquarium replicates the specific parts of the Pacific Rim with its oversized fish tanks – from the “Japanese forest” of the beautiful Japanese forests that are filled with sunlight to the “Antarctic continent” covered by snow and ice. The biggest highlight is the giant whale shark in the centre tank. After entering the hall, take the elevator to the 8th floor, then walk down the ramp. Visiting the entire Aquarium will take about two and a half hours. My brother was hungry by the end of it, but eating in the area is not allowed. There is a restaurant floor where you can sit and eat something. I bought sandwiches, drinks and sea salted ice cream. There is an open exhibition area where you can touch the whale shark. The skin of the whale shark is not as slippery as I thought it would be.
The Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan is located in the Mount Tenpo area of Osaka Bay. It is very suitable for families and children. Walk down the spiral staircase around the central water tank, and see the huge whale shark swimming in the water tank. There are displays of a large number of marine life and attractions suitable for the entire family.
