    cool but so crowded- avoid going on weekends and holidays

    If you're a tourist, get the subway pass which includes admission to the aquarium (2900 yen); great value. The main tank has many points of view, so don't spend too long when you first see it.

    So beautifully designed that even if it was any other sort of museum, it would still be a delightfully magical experience.

    This amazing aquarium is open until 8pm. So beat the crowds by coming towards the end of the day - 5.30pm onwards. You'll miss the animal feeding but you'll have peace!

    It is amazing, a wonderful experience if travelling with kids, my 1.8 year old toddler loved it.
  • Artyom F.
    The main aquarium is marvelous, depth of 8 floors filled with whale sharks, tiger sharks, oceanic manta rays, stingrays and schools of fish. You can pet some sharks and rays on the end of route. *_*

    One of the best Osaka attraction. Haven't seen better aquarium before.

    Great for children. Their whale shark is the main attraction here. In my opinion, nothing else is recommended otherwise🤔

    If you are coming from Osaka centre get the subway and aquarium combined ticket. It's a flat rate subway ticket so you can take the subway anywhere!

    Compact and entertainment packed, kaiyukan is also well designed and starred various creatures in beautiful settings. One of the best aquarium I have visited :)

    Lots to see, doesn't get boring, and I'm not really an aquarium kind of person.

    Worth the money to come here. Get to see all different sort of sea animals that you don't really get to see. Well maintained too, impressive!

    Impressive for first time. So-so for subsequent visit. Whale sharks are the main attraction for us.

    The density of cool stuff per square feet here is pretty incredible. Recommended if you are looking for something to do for the day in Osaka!

    Get the aquarium pass from the train station (2,500 yen) to take advantage of a day pass on non-JR train line and a discount on other attractions in the city.

    The most beautiful Aquarium ever seen. You can see and even touch the animals at a very close distance. A must-see when in Osaka!

    Amazing aquarium with a huge center tank that has a lot of sharks, sting rays and the whale shark. Also lots of different squid and you can pet some sharks and sting rays at the end of the tour!

    A place for children. Nothing much to see. Expensive entrances fees.

    It's certainly one of the biggest, not quite sure it's one of the best. Most impressive specimens of Japanese Spider Crabs I've seen! On the whole maybe a bit too many animal animals for an aquarium.

    It has a whale shark inside, but I did feel bad about the small conditions for both it and the dolphins :(

    It's a nice aquarium, but insanely crowded on a Sunday. Fighting crowds just to see anything made it not so enjoyable.

    Actually nothing to see. Kai-Kun is the most important star here. Have a stamp cop game here and buy those toys if you like.

    great aquarium, push past the crowds at the first few windows and head for the lower levels where the windows aren't so dirty

    A mediocre aquarium, a little old so the ceilling is very low. The variety of sea animals is not very huge. And don't even think of going here during the holiday season, this place is jam-packed!
