    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 :)

    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.

    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.

    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!
