We went to Osaka, Japan last July and it was one of amazing trip we had. I almost skip Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan because of the pricey entrance fees, 2300 yen. But, I did saw a great review about the place so still make a decision to stop by the place.
Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan is accessible with train, and I can’t remember which train we took, but it’s not difficult to get there.
However, if you want to get a promotional entrance fee, certain Train Line did offer a lower price for the train trip and entrance fees to OSAKA Aquarium. You just have to check out their website.
Kaiyukan shows the aquatic animals of the Pacific Rim at their most vibrant and dynamic, by recreating the natural environment of their habitats.
At Kaiyukan there are over 15 large tanks, each recreating a specific region of the Pacific Rim, taking visitors on a virtual tour of the Pacific Ocean. The tanks include, “Japan Forest,” which recreates a sunlit, beautiful Japanese forest; the icy, snow-clad “Antarctica;” and the centerpiece of the aquarium, “Pacific Ocean,” a 9 m deep, 34 m long tank containing 5,400 tons of water, serving as the home of whale sharks, the largest fish species in the world.
To enjoy the roughly two-and-a-half-hour trip around the Pacific, take the spiral ramp all the way from the 8th floor to the 4th floor, leaving the land of terrestrial animals to find yourself stepping into the sea all the way to the ocean floor, discovering marine life from a multitude of perspectives, from huge schools of fish to the wonderfully strange world of the deep sea. If you are lucky enough to be there during feeding times, you can also watch the captivating behavior of marine animals as they engage in unique training sessions designed to help them stay healthy.
Personally, I felt all the animals there were healthy, vibrant and active. So, I guess the Aquarium management did take good care of the animals here.
Here are some of the highlights in the aquarium.
There were a few things that I enjoy, whale sharks, jellyfish, dolphins, seals, stingrays, and all the vibrant fish in the tank. You don’t want to miss the feeding time because you can see the animals in action.
We took about 3 hours in the OSAKA Aquarium but maybe some people will take longer time. It’s depending how much you enjoy the ocean.
