Aquarium

Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2020, this aquarium is located in Osaka. The aquarium, which recreates the natural environment surrounding the Pacific Ocean, is home to a total of 620 species and 30,000 living things.

After passing through the "Aqua Gate," a tunnel-shaped aquarium where tropical fish swim, visitors can take an escalator up to the 8th floor and walk down a slope to see various creatures in a large aquarium. Each of the aquariums is a sight to behold, including the“Antarctica" with its penguins, the "Tasman Sea," where you will be welcomed by Pacific white-sided dolphin, The "Great Barrier Reef," where colorful fishes swim around, and the "Coast of Chile," where you will be amazed by the sight of sardines swimming in schools in one direction.

The main attraction is the "Pacific Ocean” tank, where whale sharks and other large sharks and rays live together. With a depth of 9 meters, a maximum length of 34 meters, and a water volume of 5,400 tons, this huge tank will give you a feeling of being under the sea as you watch the fishes swim by. The new "Jellyfish" area is also popular, where you can be healed by the graceful swaying jellyfishes in the space that looks like a galaxy.

You can enter the aquarium as many times as you like on the same day by completing the re-entry procedure. If you enter after 5:00 p.m. The lighting is a little darker and the atmosphere is more romantic. You can also take a peek at the night life of the fish, such as those that are active during the day but are more relaxed.

For those who want to know more about the creatures, the audio guide is recommended. You can take your time to observe the creatures while listening to the explanations with special earphones (Rental fee: 600 yen per unit).
